What's Special
Puff Pastry Snails not only look great on an appetizer plate but its also the perfect finger food nobody can get enough from.

Puff Pastry Snails are one of the easiest and most precious small snacks you can serve on your next appetizer table.
They taste great, regardless of whether they are enjoyed warm or cold.

The perfect finger food

Pastry snails are probably one of the best snacks when it comes to finger food.
They are easy to grab, small enough to eat in one go, and almost everyone loves them.

You can prepare pastry snails in advance

Another great thing is that you can prepare your pastry roll hours or even days before.
As mentioned in the preparation section below, you can keep your pastry roll in the freezer. If doing so, take the roll out of the freezer about 15 minutes before you want to cut it in slices, so the roll isn’t too hard anymore.

Create different fillings

You can create your own versions of puff pastry snails with different fillings.
As an example, you can also do vegetarian versions with Pesto, tomato paste with oregano, or dried tomato with mozzarella.

Ingredients:

  • 1 rectangular sheet of puff pastry
  • 150 grams of cream cheese with herbs
  • 100 grams of raw ham
  • 1 pinch of pepper & salt

Preparation:

  1. Roll out the puff pastry and spread with cream cheese Lay out the ham evenly on top
  2. Add a pinch of pepper and salt and roll up the dough on the narrow side
  3. PRACTICAL TIP: Wrap the roll into a sheet of baking paper (normally into the one the puff pastry comes with), and put it into the freezer for several minutes. This way the dough will become harder and it will get easier to cut into slices.
  4. Cut the puff pastry roll into 5-8mm thick slices and put the slices on a baking tray.
  5. Bake the puff pastry snails for about at 180° until golden brown.
