Kids Cooking Thursday: Puffy Butterflies

A really simple snack that can be whipped up in time for afternoon tea. Miss Four and Master Two helped me make these between the end of Mister Maker and when Master Six got home. Master Six helped us eat them!

Puffy Butterflies
2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
2-3 Tbsp jam (we used strawberry)
Sugar, and butter to top

Spread one sheet of pastry with jam. Top with second sheet.

Spread butter over the top sheet. (We used butter creamed with sugar because I had some in the fridge, otherwise I would have melted it before spreading) Sprinkle sugar over the top.

Cut out with a butterfly shaped biscuit cutter, or whatever shape you prefer. Place on a paper lined baking tray.

Bake for about 20 minutes at 180°C, or until golden.

Cool for as long as hungry tummies can stand. The aim is to serve fairly warm, but not so anyone burns themselves on hot jam.
