I finally bought "Barefoot in Paris," my last Ina Garten cookbook. I was So excited to try it out and I found this sparkly gem of a recipe inside: BEWARE: THIS IS SUPER SUPER EASY!!!
1 pack pepperidge farm puff pastry (2 sheets)
2 cups of sugar
1/8 tsp. kosher salt
Thaw your puff pastry.
( she suggests overnight in the fridge...that works, but it also works 40 minutes on the counter)
preheat oven to 450
First mix the salt and sugar together.
put 1 C. of the mixture onto your board,
then put one of your sheets down
pour 1/2 cup mixture on top.
roll it out to a 14 inch square making sure the sheet is coated front and back with sugar.
Fold like this:
bake at 450 for 5 minutes
they should look like this:
Then flip them all over and bake for another 4-6 minutes. Just til the sugar is all caramelized or there is slight browning.
ok..so for St. Patricks day I tried tinting them GREEN by adding a couple of drops of food coloring to the sugar. (mixing it in a ziploc)
