Our Ticks of Yum

Remember Matchsticks? I haven't had them for YEARS!!



I made some little chicken pies recently and had a little of the EDC rough puff pastry left over so I thought I would make up a couple of Matchsticks, they were DELICIOUS and I wish I had scrapped the mini pies to leave enough for more than a couple of Matchsticks!



  1. Make up a batch of EDC rough puff pastry (for help and support, see my post ) after the "sitting in the fridge chilling" stage
  2. Roll out fairly thin, 2-3mm
  3. Cut into rectangles (or anything really.... nothing says Matchsticks need to be rectangular, just easier to cut)

Remember DO NOT CUT with a knife on your Thermomix silicon mat - use your spatula

  1. Pop shapes onto a tray with a sheet of baking paper on it - leave a tiny bit of room to expand
  2. Sprinkle with icing sugar (or be exotic and use vanilla sugar - recipe also in EDC)
  3. Put into a HOT oven (220oC) for 10 minutes and then turn down to 190oC for further 5 minutes until brown and flakey



Spread jam on one rectangle (or shape), add some whipped cream (I add vanilla sugar to my cream for extra yumminess!)

stick another one on top


THAT'S IT - they are SO flakey and SO delicious - nothing like the sharp and hard puff pastry that you buy!


HINT: what else could you use the puff pastry for? What about vanilla slices?? Cinnamon swirls (roll pastry out into large rectangle, sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar, roll up and cut 0.5cm slices off, lay flat and sprinkle lightly with more cinnamon sugar and cook as above)
