Danish Pastry Windmills Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 16

25 g/1 oz ground almonds
25 g/1 oz/3 tbsp icing (confectioners') sugar
A little egg white
1/2 quantity Danish Pastry

Method:

To make the filling, grind the almonds and icing sugar together, then gradually blend in enough egg white to make a firm, smooth mixture. Roll out the pastry and cut into 10 cm/4 in squares. Cut diagonally from the corners to within 1 cm/0.5 in of the centre. Place a spoonful of the filling in the centre of each windmill, then bring four of the corners into the centre like a windmill and press into the filling. Place on a baking (cookie) sheet and leave in a warm place for 15 minutes. Brush with the remaining egg white and bake in a preheated oven at 230C/450F/gas mark 8 for 10-15 minutes until risen and golden.
