Braided Mince Meat Puffs
Hey guys, Christmas is round the corner and I want to share with you a crispy, flaky and flavourful Braided Mince Meat Puff recipe. This is not the normal simple looking puff but a creatively decorated one that would add to the 'Wow' , 'yum' , 'melt in the mouth' and 'superb' comments from your friends and relies.
You don't have to slave in the kitchen for hours together making the pastry from scratch. You can do the magic with the frozen puff pastry sheet. The technique is simple. You have to make diagonal cuts down the sides of your sheet of pastry and criss-cross them over the filling. I have used left over mince meat. You can see my recipe in YouTube channel for preparing mince meat.
So, follow my step-by-step instructions in the pictures given below and I am sure, you will get lots of 'Wows' for your Braided Mince Meat Puffs. But, please remember me when you are enjoying with your friends, share the recipe with them and ask them too to like, share and subscribe to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube. After all, sharing is caring!!!
