There is a baked pastry called ‘Escargot’ and I love it. The one that a local bakery is selling has Custard and Sultanas in it. These ‘Puff Pastry Twists’ are inspired by the bakery’s ‘Escargot’. It takes only a few minutes to make the Custard in the microwave. Using store-bought Frozen Butter Puff Pastry, these delicious Twists are super easy to make.


12 OR 18 Twists


1 sheet Butter Puff Pastry *thawed
1/4 cup Sultanas *optional

Quick & Easy Custard
1 Egg Yolk
2 tablespoons Caster Sugar
1/2 tablespoon Custard Powder *You can use Corn Starch OR Plain Flour
1/4 cup Milk
*Note: You may wish to add a few drops of Vanilla Extract OR Rum for flavour

  1. To make Custard, whisk all the ingredients in a heat-proof bowl until smooth, heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, whisk, then heat again and bring to the boil. Whisk until smooth, then cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 200℃. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Place a sheet of Butter Puff Pastry on a floured surface, cut in half, evenly spread cooled Custard, scatter Sultanas on one of 1/2 sheet, cover with the other half, and press slightly.

  4. Cut into 3 pieces, then cut each piece into 4 strips.

    If you don’t add Sultanas, you could cut each piece into 6 strips.
  5. Press both ends of each strip slightly so that layers stick to each other, then twist the strip, having the custard side inside, then place on the prepared baking tray.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until nicely browned, then place on a wire rack and cool.
