Little Mikes

I had some free time this morning. I decided to cook. The most difficult thing is to translate. Probably most of you know them with another name. Here we call them “miguelitos”, something like “little Mikes”. Summarizing: puff pastry with cream :)

We´ll need:

  1. Puff pastry. Can you believe it?
  2. One egg.

Extend the puff pastry and well, you know what to do with the egg :)

With a paintbrush, paint your puff pastry with the egg. Then, cut the pastry as you like!

Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
