Sesame Crunchy Bars

Puff pastry is that one dough you should always have in your refrigerator. For those who don’t know what the Puff Pastry dough is, here’s a little description (source Wikipedia):

 "It is a flaky light pastry made from a laminated dough composed of dough and butter or other solid fat. The butter is put inside the dough (or vice versa), making a paton which is repeatedly folded and rolled out before baking. The gaps that form between the layers left by the fat melting are pushed (leavened) by the water turning into steam during the baking process."

If you understood nothing, don't worry. All this definition is telling us that the dough rises a lot when baked. You can find many recipes over the internet for puff pastry. But, personally, I would recommend to buy it: much easier and not expensive at all. In fact, the best part of recipes with Puff pastry is that you don’t need to make the dough. Just unfreez and make shapes and bake.

Today I will be showing the simplest and yet delicious recipes made with puff pastry: these crunchy sesame bars.


Step 1: If you buy the dough frozen (that’s how you find it commonly), unfreez it. Don’t unfreez it completely, so it is easy to work on it.

Step 2: Lay the dough, spread a good amount of sugar on it. Stretch it with the roller. Extend it so the sugar kind of gets in it.
If you have, for example, 1 cm of dough’s thickness, stretch it till it becomes 0,5 cm (half of it).

Step 3: coat it with beaten egg. Sprinkle some more sugar over the egg. Add to it the sesame seeds. Add as much as you like. (I like them a little too extra). Cut in strips. Place them on baking dish with butter paper.

Step 4: Bake for 20-25 minutes on 170 º C

Perfect for breakfast or any other tea/coffee time. ENJOY!
