A Homespun Year....Shortcrust Pastry Rosettes...

 
Aren't these too cute for words?
 
Fashioned from sheets of frozen Sweet Shortcrust Pastry, they're also delicious and incredibly easy to make.
 
Are you ready?
 
 
Lay the sheets of frozen pastry on some baking paper and allow it to defrost. Then using a small scone (biscuit) cutter, cut circles from the pastry sheets.

 
Cut as many as you can from each sheet, then sprinkle them liberally with  superfine sugar, edible glitter, cinnamon sugar, vanilla infused or lemon sugar.

 
Be fairly generous with your sprinkling, and make sure you go right to the edges.


Now roll those little circles up tightly, and press the edges to secure.


Cut them in half, or into three if they're too long to stand up (you end up with a sort of cylinder piece left over from the middle, but you can bake that too....), spread and flatten  the 'petals' slightly, and stand them on their bases...
 

 
...and line them up on a tray.
 

 
Bake at 175C fan forced for about ten minutes or until they're just browning on the edges.
 

 
Allow to cool.... and enjoy...that's it!
 

 
Pretty little dainty mouthfuls!
