NORTH Festival: Kanelbullar {Swedish Cinnamon Buns}

Our dear Swedish family friend recounts living as a 6-year-old with her grandparents in a small Swedish town. Her grandparents lived above the family-run konditori so she woke to the smell of Kanelbullar {Swedish Cinnamon Buns} and other pastries.

Palmiers

You might recall that not too long ago I posted about the Pepperidge Farm “Puffection” Holiday Entertaining Challenge. Now for the second part of the challenge: my own “Puffection” creation using Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. Golden, caramelized sugar coats these puff pastry palmiers. Enjoy them plain, with cinnamon and sugar, or dipped in chocolate for a special holiday treat.

Pop-Tarts

Homemade pop-tarts {little breakfast pastries filled with berries and/or jams and glazed with icing} are much more appetizing than the store-bought versions. And for special a treat, it’s your opportunity to eat little pies for breakfast!

Raspberry Pastry Braid

Ham & Cheese Croissants

In this savory croissant, the ham and cheese are baked inside the buttery pastry dough to make a warm, panini-style sandwich that is great for a main meal or as the side to a soup or salad.

Nutella Croissants

My inspiration for this chocolatey version of the croissant came from the popular French pastry, pain au chocolat, which is essentially a chocolate-filled croissant in the shape of a rectangle instead of a crescent. En lieu of plain chocolate I decided to try Nutella which turns out to be a popular croissant filling in Germany.

Almond Crescents

These flaky, buttery pastries in the shape of a crescent are essentially croissants. I like to make an assortment of flavors but these almond crescents oozing with melt-in-your-mouth almond filling are my favorite.

Quick Croissants

Croissants are a flaky, buttery pastry in the shape of a crescent. They are traditionally made with a yeast dough that is layered and rolled with butter (a process called laminating) but this recipe simplifies the process. I like to make an assortment of croissants, leaving some plain to be served with butter and jam or used as sandwich bread, and filling the rest with sweet and savory ingredients.

Scones

Scones are a quick bread of Scottish origin that always make me think of the British tea time. There are variations around the world and you can find scones of many different flavors but in my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a plain buttery scone with berry jam.
