005/2011 late christmas baking

005/2011 late christmas baking, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

As we spent Christmas in England , I’ve baked just a few Finnish Christmas goodies after coming home. Today it was my favourites – puff pastry made into a star shape, with prune jam in the middle. Sprinkling the icing sugar on top always makes me think that it’s snowing.

This is what they look like before putting them in the oven. So thin and pale.

I remember how my mum used to even make the pastry herself. These days it’s so much easier to buy rolled-out pastry squares frozen. They taste just as good, but you still get the pleasure of baking a little, and most of all the lovely smell circling round the house.

    These look yummy! Especially, like the visual transformation from unbaked to ‘ready to eat’! And I bet they went/are going fast.

    Hiya Marie, yes they went like anything – best when still a little bit warm 🙂

    Thank you Susan and Sandra. Food photography is interesting, but very challenging to produce mouth-watering shots 😉
