Puff Pastry Snail Cookies

Do you ever play with your food? These little Pastry Puff Snail Cookies are a result of me playing in the kitchen. I had some extra puff pastry left over from another recipe and I didn’t want to just throw it away.

I was really just going for round cookies; however, after baking them, I saw little snails! So I got some eyeball candy and little bow stickers and I went to town!

My daughter loved them! I think it would be a hoot to make a bunch of these snail cookies for a children’s garden tea party. You can color them or leave them plain if you prefer. Each little snail is unique, just like each kid! Give them all a different personality just by changing up the eyes.

There are just so many things you can make with puff pastry. It’s such a versatile base for so many desserts. I love it!

Puff Pastry Snail Cookies

Serves (serves 12)     adjust servings


(serves 12)

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 C Sugar
  • Colored Sugar Sprinkles, if desired
  • Candy Eyes
  • Edible Pen
  • Bow Stickers


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Sprinkle work area with 1/2 cup sugar and lay puff pastry over top. Cover with the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Roll puff pastry out to a 12-inch rectangle, being sure to press the sugar into the dough.
  3. Add some colored sugar along the longest side. Add 2 or 3 lines if you want colored snails.
  4. Roll the puff pastry up along the long edge and use a sharp knife or dental floss to cut 1/2 inch sections. Place them on the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 6 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 400°F and carefully flip the cookies over. Continue to bake for another 5 to 6 minutes, watching them carefully so they do not burn.
  5. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack.
  6. The sugar will be HOT, so be careful when handling right out of the oven.
  7. Once cooled, attach the eyes with a dot of corn syrup. I used a toothpick to add the syrup. Decorate with a bow and serve them up!
