It’s been a busy long weekend, with Easter, an important birthday, and an impromptu bonfire party with friends. It’s been one of those weekends where you feel happily exhausted by the end of it. With school back tomorrow we planned a quiet day today. I did five loads of laundry, cooked a roast dinner, and sent the kids outside to play all afternoon in the wild wind.
To fuel the outside play I made a quick and easy sweet snack that we’ve christened ‘Sprinkle Sticks!’
They are like little pastry jam sandwiches crossed with pastry fairy bread. Sweet sticky berries on the inside, sprinkles on the outside, and cut into little sticks so you can gobble them up really fast!
We made two batches today, one using puff pastry and one using short crust pastry. You could use homemade pastry, but we used the frozen stuff which makes this recipe very quick and easy. We taste tested both versions and both were good, but we liked the light crunchiness of the puff pastry better than the shirt crust pastry, but both were yum!
The recipe below is enough to make one round of sprinkle sticks using 2 sheets of pastry, which was more than enough for an afternoon snack for the 6 hungry people in our family. Just make up more jam and berry mixture if you need to make lots of sprinkle sticks, they’d be great for a party!
You could fill these with so many different jams or fruits, and you could co-ordinate your sprinkles to match the season, holiday or celebration!
