Almond pastry fingers

Getting pastries from a supermarket or cafe is so easy…. that is, unless you are vegan.

Craving pastries and sweets but don’t want to spend a whole afternoon in the kitchen making your own vegan pastry dough from scratch? Introducing the ready-made puff pastry sheet! Your new best friend!

Here is another of my quick and easy recipes with ready-made puff pastry – almond pastry fingers.

Preheat your oven to 170˚C.

Mix the melted vegan butter, sugar and maple syrup in a small bowl. Dust the table with a pinch of flour and spread out the puff pastry sheet.

I am using 320g Jus-Rol puff pastry sheet, each sheet can make about 30-35 finger and we are only 2 people household, so I only use half sheet gently.

The pastry sheet will be easiest to work with when it’s fresh from the refrigerator. If you leave it too long at room temperature it will become too soft and sticky to handle.

Brush the sugar mixture on the pastry sheet. Sprinkle the almond flakes evenly over the sheet and place cling film on top. With your hands or a rolling pin gently press the almonds into the pastry.

If your pastry is getting too soft, put it in the freezer for 15-30 minutes before trying to cut it.

Remove the cling film, cut the pastry into 2 x 5 cm strips, you should be able to make around 15 strips. Place the strips onto a lined baking tray, leaving at least a 2cm space between each one.

Bake for 10 minutes until they are puffy and golden on top. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

If you would prefer sweeter fingers you can brush another layer of melted butter and sprinkle on a couple teaspoons of sugar before you serve.
