How to make a puff pastry wreath for Christmas

Start by cutting thawed puff pastry into a large disc. Cut a star into the center and arrange your filling around the star. Pull each point of the star over the filling towards the outer edge and pinch the pastry together with your fingers. Brush with egg wash then bake until golden brown and puffed.

    I need to cook this in advance to take to a party, but I don’t want to burden my hostess. It’s seems like something that needs to beserved warm though -yes? Can you recommend an easy way to heat it up? Would hanging out at room temp for a little bit work?
    It may not work for this event….

      Room temp would be fine. It’s lovely when warm but it’s just as good at room temp.

    Hi! This looks amazing! If I make it ahead of time, should I put the egg wash and salt on when I prepare it, or right before I bake it?

    • Alida Ryder

      Yes, I would egg wash it just before baking.

    This sounds yummy…I made cranberry pepper jam recently and was just thinking it would be fun to try using some with this recipe.

    Has anyone made this substituting cranberry pepper jelly for cranberry sauce? I think it would be amazing.

    I get a bit stuck on details.. can you help with approximate size of full circle and inner circle?

      Reply

      The full circle is probably 20-30 cm in diameter and the inner circle around 10cm.
