    Serves: 12 

    • 1 (500g) packet frozen puff pastry, thawed
    • 300g caster sugar

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Grease a baking tray or line it with greaseproof paper.
    2. Unroll puff pastry sheets on a dry, lightly floured surface. Sheets should be about 1/2 cm thick. Spread sugar liberally over the entire surface of each sheet. Tightly roll or fold up the pastry from each side of the sheet to meet in the middle. It will look like face to face snails. Slice the roll into 1 cm slices, like a loaf of bread. Lay out on prepared baking tray about 2 cm apart. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.
    3. Store in an airtight tin.

    Schweineohren is a typical German pastry. To get the authentic flavour, you need to brush the dough with melted butter, then sprinkle it with sugar. Without the butter the cookie is too dry!!  -  31 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    very simple and delicious. i drizzled with some icing. make sure to get these off the baking sheet as soon as they come out of the oven or else they will become permanently 'glued' to your baking sheet. i bet they would be good with cinnamon and sugar too.  -  29 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I make these often. We call them "palmeritas" or "manitas" in PR and in Panama they are called "orejas". After I bake them I like to brush a glaze (honey w/ butter {1:1 or to taste}) on one side and sprinkle tiny nonpareils (grajeas)on them.  -  19 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
