Walnut Puffs Recipe

Walnut Puffs Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 18

200 g/7 oz walnuts, coarsely ground
75 g/3 oz caster (superfine) sugar
30 ml/2 tbsp anis liqueur or Pernod

25 g/1 oz/2 tbsp butter or margarine, softened
450 g/1 lb Puff Pastry

1 egg, beaten


Mix together the walnuts, sugar, liqueur and butter or margarine. Roll out the pastry (paste) on a lightly floured surface to a 60 x 30 cm/24 x 12 in rectangle (or you can roll out half the pastry at a time). Cut into 18 squares and divide the walnut mixture between the squares. Brush the edges of the squares with beaten egg, fold over and seal into sausage shapes with the join underneath and twist the ends like a sweet wrapper. Arrange on a greased baking (cookie) sheet and brush with beaten egg. Bake in a preheated oven at 230C/450F/gas mark 8 for 10 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Eat warm on the day they are baked.
