Ingredients

  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 1 cup round peppermints (about 40 pieces)
  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Mix the water and the egg and beat until fully combined.
  • Place a metal bowl and the whisk in the freezer. This will help whip the cream faster.
  • Use a cookie cutter to cut the puff pastry. Make sure you cut them as close as possible because if you re-roll the dough, it will not puff.
  • Place the puff pastry stars on a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Brush the pastry with the egg wash.
  • Bake for 12-15 or until golden.
  • Add the peppermint rounds to a blender and blend until you have a fine powder.
  • Add the whipping cream to the bowl and beat for 5 minutes, or until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold the peppermint powder into the whipped cream. Cover the whipping cream and place it in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
  • Let the puff pastry fully cool down and cut in it half, horizontally. You want to have a base and a lid.
  • When you are ready to serve, add the whipping cream to a bag with a round nozzle and pipe it on the bottom half of the puff pastry.
  • Sprinkle some powder sugar on top to decorate.

Notes

NOTE: Servings based on yielding 12 stars from the puff pastry, total. Actual servings will vary, depending on the size of your star cookie cutters.
