Vol au vent puff pastry stars recipe of 27-12-2019
THE vol au vent puff pastry stars they are a very nice idea to serve a delicious appetizer during the Christmas season. Instead of the classic, round shape of the vol-au-vents, I simply used a star mold instead of the round one, a tiny change that aesthetically makes a real difference;) For the filling I used a combination quite typical of the period: mayonnaise , salmon and olives. Of course you can also use just the basic recipe to prepare the star vol au vent and then stuff them as you like: ricotta and ham, sautéed vegetables, chickpea hummus ... Indeed, please: let me know in the comments which filling you opted for;)
How to make puff pastry vol au vent stars
Unroll the puff pastry and get an even number of stars with a mold.
Pierce the center of half of the stars with a round pastry cutter.
Brush the whole stars with milk, then overlap the perforated ones, making the edges coincide well, placing them gradually on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Brush again with the milk and cook for about 15 minutes or until golden brown at 180 °, in a preheated convection oven, then let it cool.
Cut the olives and salmon into small pieces and mix them with the mayonnaise.
If necessary, flatten the center of the vol au vents a little with your finger, then fill with the filling.
The puff pastry vol au vent stars are ready, decorated with pink peppercorns and served.
