Almond Puff Rolls

68 comments


Made these Almond Puff Rolls last week. Besides the flaky crust of the puff pastry,  I also loved the almond filling very much. I used frozen puff pastry as I was too lazy to make the pastry myself and moreover the almond spread was very quick to prepare. Really hope you'll try this recipe if you're an almond fan. It's so easy to make and delicious too,  not too sweet and fragrant with every bite. Also great to serve this at party.
Let me me share with you .... shhh this almond spread tasted like the one at Swissbake ... hehee





Almond Puff Rolls

    Ingredients:
    11-12 pcs Frozen puff pastry sheets (size about 4 x 4 inch) cut from 2-3 frozen puff pastry

     Filling - Almond Spread
     250g Almond meal/ground
     1/2 tsp Almond essence
     85g Icing sugar
     1/2 tsp Vanilla powder/extract
     1 tbsp Lemon juice
     1 Egg white
     4 tbsp Fresh milk




     Method:
  • Preheat oven to 200 degree C.
  • Combine Filling ingredients to make a thick paste. Dilute with milk to make almond spread.
  • Take one large thawed puff pastry, prick holes with a fork and cut into 4 equal sizes. Dust some flour if you find the puff pastry a little sticky.
  • Spread a generous almond spread over pastry with a palette knife but leave edges alone and brush some milk on pastry while rolling it up. Poke some holes with a fork and press to seal. Use a sharp knife to slit some lines on the surface.
  • Lastly brush the top with some milk and sprinkle some coarse sugar or almond flakes on it.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.


Enjoy!

    1. You may like to increase the sugar a little as kids usually have sweet tooth. :)

    1. Ai li, remember to thaw the pastry inside the fridge at least few hours or overnight in the fridge.

    2. Ann, you think I can freeze them and bake when we want to eat? I bought a 1kg pack (6pcs) of the frozen puff pastry from PH today. Will it be too small if I cut them into half? Thanks!

      Delete
    3. Sorry, I mean I cut each roll into half. Will it be too small?

      Delete
    4. Yes you can roll the filling inside the puffs and put them in the freezer. I think better to bake first then cut. If cut then bake, I'm afraid the filling will split out during baking. You can also fold them into triangle, anyway convenient to you.

    5. Thank you for always being so helpful! Really appreciate it! Thanks again!

    6. Ann, I baked this today. It is very nice except I think I never put enough filling so its not sweet enough and the taste of almond is very mild. However, I did manage to get 11pcs and used 3 sheets of the puff pastry. So actually didn't know where did I go wrong. But its still very nicy and yummy!

      Delete
    7. Sometime the sizes of the puff pastry might be a little different. Next time you can make to 10 pcs and increase the icing sugar and almond essence if you like.

      Delete
    8. Ann, you could be right - the size of the pastry. Did you buy yours from PH? Increasing the almond essence won't make it taste and smell artificial? I think I also rolled too tightly and the pastry does not look as flaky as in your pictures above. Anyway, we still like them but will seek to improve....thanks, Ann!

    9. Ai Li, Actually my friend bought the frozen puff pastry from a factory. It comes in a carton of 100 sheets, about 4 x 4 inch at 30cts each. I took 30 sheets from her.
      The almond paste should have a mild taste of almond, can increase to 3/4 tsp essence but not too much. No need to roll the pastry to very tight but must seal properly.

  22. These puff rolls look crazily good with almond filling!

  23. These look addictive! Great idea for parties. I need to make these too. I suppose I can use marzipan as filling. I still have a few packets of marzipan. Must experiment with it. Thanks very much for sharing. Hope you have a great week.

    1. Not sure whether mazipan is too sweet. Can use almond flakes. Toast it before you blend the flakes into powder.

  30. Sorry, turn up so late for these almond rolls. I don't think that I have seen this in Sydney before for so many years, sounds like a new and interesting recipe to me. Shhh, I never make the puff pastry from scratch though I have time last time, haha! Indeed, it is a great dish to be served in the party!

  35. Hi Ann
    In the almond spread filling, you mentioned that to dilute with milk to make almond spread, how much milk to be added in? Just enough to mix all the ingredients to come together?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oops! sorry Mel and thank you for telling me. Luckily I scribbled down the recipe in my note book. Is 4 tbsp of milk to be added last.

      Delete
    2. Thank you :) Pricking holes is not to let the pastry too puffy after baked.
      Sometime the puff pastry that you used might be the folding of pastry is not enough or over folded or the store bought one is long overdue.

      BTW I went to your blog just now, but I can't find your comment box to leave comment :(

  36. Hi Ann, I love the almond pastry at Swiss too, yum! thanks for sharing this recipe :) Does pricking the puff pastry with holes help it be puffy after baking? I tried to bake the apple cinnamon version and the pastry was not puffy :p
