  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • Carefully twist sandwich cookies apart and remove the cream filling with a knife.
  • Place the cream filling into one bowl and the cookies in the other.
  • Beat the cookies in a food processor until they are finely ground.
  • Add half of the ground cookies to the bowl with the cream and mix with a fork.
  • Place the remaining ground cookies on a clean working surface and spread them out with a spoon until they are spread out to the size of the sheet of puff pastry.
  • Lay out the sheet of puff pastry and brush the surface with a lightly beaten egg.
  • Cover the ground cookies with the puff pastry, brushed side down.
  • Remove the plastic wrapping on the other side and lightly roll out puff pastry.
  • Cut into 12 equal sized squares and cut the corner of each square 2-3 cm inward towards the center.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of the filling in the center of each square.
  • Spread the melted butter at the edges of each square.
  • Lift the corners of the puff pastry, one at a time and fold them towards the center. This will create a “windmill” shape.
  • Line a 20x30 cm baking pan with parchment paper and place the windmills on it.
  • Sprinkle with the leftover ground cookies from the working surface.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
