braided

I was so excited to try that braided puff pastry thing I posted a link to the other day, that I decided to give it a go for a treat to bring to Amanda's going away party.

I made a filling of roasted butternut squash, red onions, pine nuts, sage, parsley and goat cheese and got to work.

It was super easy! just roll out a piece of puff pastry, cut off the corners at the top, little notches at the bottom and strips down the sides.


Fill, braid, brush it with a little bit of egg wash for color and bake!


It was so pretty and so tasty!

I also made this cake, but neglected to take photos. It was amazing!

This is very cool and looks delicious! I'll have to try it. I just need to decide what to put inside...Nutella, perhaps? You can never go wrong with nutella, I think.

Jaime said...

Wow- I am impressed! That looks just delicious :) I agree with Brandi- a sweet one would be good too...chocolate or nutella, yum!

I am so impressed! Those were one of the things on my list I wanted to do but knew I would never do it. But yours looks just like the original photo. I wish I was at that going away party.
