Step 1: Ingredients:

  • 300g figs
  • 25g unsalted Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 10g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Table spoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 puff pastry sheet (275 g)

Makes: 15

Time: Preparation – 30 minutes, Baking – 15 minutes (200 C)

Step 2: Method:

Fig filling: (This can be prepared a day before)

Rinse the figs and cut them in half.

Take the flesh out using a tea spoon and place it in a bowl.

Melt the butter in a pan, add the figs, cinnamon and sugar. Stir well.

Simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes until the mixture has a “mushy” look.

Add lemon juice & taste. If you are happy with its taste, remove from the stove and let it cool down.

Place in a fridge for 1 hour or overnight.

Fig roses:

Cut the pre-rolled puff pastry into squares (preferably 8-9 cm wide).

Take one square & using a small knife, make diagonal cuts in all 4 corners. Cut towards the centre

but make sure to not cut through the centre. Repeat with all of them

Place a tea spoon of fig filling in the middle of the square.

Using both hands, grab 2 corners that are further apart & bring them towards the middle creating a “wall” around the filling. Press down to secure the corners.

Repeat with the opposite side. Secure the corner by pinching them with your finger and tucking them under the pastry – now you should create a rose like shape.

Place the roses on a baking tray lined with baking paper, brush with egg wash.

Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes (or until golden brown around the edges) at 200C.

Once they are ready, let them cool down for a few minutes, then sprinkle with icing sugar.

Tip: These pastries are best served warm!
