It’s crunch time. Christmas is 4 days away. Maybe you have a freezer full of Christmas cookies, ready to pull out at moment’s notice. Or maybe you haven’t baked a thing. And that’s okay! This is what bakeries are for.
If you wish you had baked something, and you are a little sad you haven’t but you just don’t have time , this recipe is for you. Puff pastry is wrapped around a filling of sugar, lime zest, and cardamom then finished with some holiday sprinkles. Cookies you will be proud of, from start to finsh in 20 minutes or less!
Start with a roll of ready-to-bake crescent rolls.
Open the dough out flat on a parchment lined paper and use your fingers to pinch together the perforations, creating a single rectangle.
In a small bowl mix together some lime zest, some Demerara (raw) sugar and some ground cardamon. Spread this all over the dough, reaching right to the edges.
Now, starting at one of the short ends, roll the dough up like a carpet pressing it together as you go along.
Sprinkle some sanding sugar or colored sprinkles on the parchment paper and roll the log of dough over it, pressing in the sprinkles as you do.
Cut the log into 12 slices and bake for about 10 minutes.
Let them cool. Put them on a plate. And you are good to go.
Cookies in 20 minutes or less!
And with that I wish you Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I’ll be back in the New Year!
