A Sweet Treat for Valentine's Day

Sometimes you might want a treat to go with
your coffee or in my case, tea.  

Sometimes you might not want a rich & decadent treat.
Sometimes you might just want something simple.

Enter these Pastry Bites, done in Valentine's Day style.

I had this recipe for quite a few years,
ripped from a magazine and tucked away
to make "some day."
(I'm not even going to go into how many of
recipes I have tucked away for "some day.")  

Let's just say that "some day" is today for this recipe.

These are really a cinch to make and they taste so good.
Here's the recipe:

Pastry Bites

6 tablespoons raw sugar 
1 ½ teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 ½ teaspoons ground allspice
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (thawed)
1 egg, beaten

In a bowl, mix sugar, spices & a pinch of salt.

On a parchment lined baking sheet, brush pastry with egg; sprinkle with half the sugar mixture.

Cover with another sheet of parchment, then flip over.

Peel off top parchment.  Brush pastry with egg,then sprinkle with remaining sugar.

Cut pastry into 10 strips & twist them.

You can leave them in long twisted strips or you can mold them into hearts as I did here.

Bake at 375 degrees until crispy, about 16-20 minutes.

And just like that, you have simple, crispy little treats that
took no time at all to make.
