strawberrytreat

Today’s treat recipe comes from inspiration at Disneyland! Disney foodies from across the world are always looking for food ideas that remind them of “home” and this recipe for Strawberry Twists just may help! Here’s how you make them!

What You’ll Need

1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1 (17.3-ounce) box (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, thawed

Powdered sugar, for garnish

Helpful Tip
You may substitute 1/3 cup store-bought strawberry jam.

How To Make It

1 Combine strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Mash mixture with a potato masher until the berries are softened and sugar is dissolved.
2 Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil, stirring often to prevent mixture from sticking to pan, until thick, about 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
3 Place one sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured, movable, flat surface, such as a lightweight cutting board. Lightly dust surface of pastry with flour and roll to smooth creases.
4 Spread pastry sheet with 1/3 cup of the strawberry mixture. (Refrigerate any remaining strawberry mixture for up to 5 days.)
5 Roll the second sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to smooth creases; place on top of first sheet and press down gently.
6 Place filled puff pastry in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
7 Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick silicone mat.
8 Using a ruler as a guide, cut into pastry into 1 1/2-inch strips. Carefully pick up strips and place on baking sheets, twisting 3 times before laying down.
9 Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Cool 10 minutes and finish with a dusting of powdered sugar.
