I make these every year for a get-together with my Danish girlfriends and all our kids. We meet in the afternoon about 3pm (school finishes at 2pm) and make Christmas decorations - an essential part of a truly Danish Christmas :) We chat, eat various Christmas goodies like æbleskiver (Danish Christmas donuts), pebernødder (tiny, round, spicy cookies), vanillekranse (vanilla biscuits formed like wreaths). And drink lots of coffee, juice and gløgg (hot mulled wine).
- salt n' pepper
- dried thyme, if you happen to have it
- readymade puff pastry
- egg yolk for glazing
Now glaze the whole of the top of the pastry. Cut into individual 'rolls' about 5cm (2 inches) wide and use a pair of scissors to make three small cuts in the top of each roll. Something to do with the Three Wise Men. Apparently...
Bake in a preheated hot oven - 225c or 425f - for about 20 minutes. They should come out all puffed up and golden brown. Leave to cool slightly then serve with...ketchup! ;)
Bon appétit and happy Saturday! :)
