Here’s a quick, delicious dessert idea, from food Network, when you are running short on time, but want something that looks like it took hours to prepare. I tried these puff pastry knots, and they are flaky & fantastic. You can use any jam or jelly that you have on hand. Raspberry is also delicious.
Ingredients 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
1/4 cup apricot preserves or use Raspberry or Strawberry jam
2 cups vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out puff pastry into a rectangle, about 12 by 15 inches. Spread preserves over the dough, to within 1/2-inch of the edges. Fold dough in half lengthwise. Gently roll again to seal edges. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut dough crosswise into 1/2-inch thick strips. Take each strip by the ends and tie into a knot. Arrange knots on a large baking sheet and press down the ends. Bake 6 to 10 minutes, until puffed up and golden brown. Scoop frozen yogurt or ice cream into dessert bowls and lay twists over top.
