  • 1 Puff Pastry Sheet
  • 3/4 - 1 cup Fine Sugar or as needed
  • Oil for greasing


  • Remove the pastry sheet from the refrigerator and thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Cut the pastry sheet into two rectangles.
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees C.
  • Line a baking tray with aluminum foil and grease with little oil. Keep it aside.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar over the flat surface.
  • Place the pastry sheet on the sugared work surface.
  • Sprinkle sugar (approx. 1/4 cup) in an even layer over the pastry sheet.
  • Roll it gently with a rolling pin to press the sugar into it.
  • Trim the edges if needed.
  • Now fold both long sides of the sheet towards the middle.
  • Then fold both long sides of the sheet once again to meet in the middle.
  • Now cut the folded sheet into 1/4 inch thick slices.
  • Repeat the same process with the remaining pastry sheet.
  • Place the slices on a baking sheet, spacing them 1 inch apart.
  • And pinch the base of the slice gently to form a “Y” shape.
  • Bake them in the preheated oven for 12 – 15 minutes or until golden brown color.
  • Place them on a wire rack and let them cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container.
