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.
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 endless things you can make with puff pastry. It’s such a versatile base for so many desserts. I love it!
- 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
- 1 cup sugar
- Colored Sugar Sprinkles, if desired
- Candy Eyes
- Edible Pen
- Bow Stickers
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- 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.
- Add some colored sugar along the longest side. Add 2 or 3 lines if you want colored snails.
- 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 degrees F and carefully flip the cookies over. Continue to bake for another 5 to 6 minutes, watching them carefully so they do not burn.
- Remove from oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack.
- The sugar will be HOT, so be careful when handling right out of the oven.
- 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!
