Party nightSeptember 28, 2006 at 12:02 am | Posted in Food | 1 Comment
I had a great time having “Italian” dinner at my friends’ place tonight. Now, I’m just too full to sleep.😛
I brought some mini palmier puff pastries I made this afternoon. German friends told me they might call it “pig ears”. It’s called “butterfly crisp”(蝴蝶酥) in Chinese, which I like much more.😀 I was always pleased when getting the fresh “butterflies” coming out from the bakery in university a few years ago.
It’s not so easy making the pastries with our mini oven (similar to this), which can only hold two pieces of regular toaster. I can only bake 6-8 pieces every time due to the limited space. Besides, I have to watch the oven every 5 min to make sure the pastries are evenly baked but not over-cooked. Anyway, the result is not too bad and I dont think I will make them so frequently.
I put the most symmetrical one on an 8-inch plate, then you can see how small it is. Just for no more than 2 bites!
