Banana Puffs
Method
  • Peel the bananas and cut them in half, lengthwise. Then cut into 2 cm pieces.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add sugar, cognac, cinnamon and walnuts. Mix and set the filling aside.
  • Spread the pastry sheet on a working surface and cut into 6 equal sized pieces. (Cut the longer side into 3 pieces to get 3 strips and then cut down the middle of each strip to create 6 squares.)
  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • Cut each square in half diagonally to create 2 equal sized triangles. You should have 12 triangles.
  • Position each triangle in front of you, with the tip of the triangle pointing away from you.
  • Use a sharp knife to make 4 shallow slits in each triangle, making sure you don’t cut all the way through.
  • The first 2 slits should be parallel to the 2 large sides of the triangle and 0.5 cm away from the sides. Be careful not to cut 1 cm from the base or from the tip.
  • The other 2 slits should be made on the inside of the first slits and parallel to them, leaving a 0.5 cm space. Always making sure not to cut all the way through the dough.
  • Add 1 heaping teaspoon of the filling in the middle of the dough that should be uncut.
  • Fold the left side over the filling and fold the right side over the left.
  • Hold the base of the triangle with one finger and pull on the tip of the triangle with the other hand so that the slits get pulled apart a little so that they can be seen better when baked.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper and add the banana puffs.
  • Brush with the egg wash and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven, dust with icing sugar and serve.
