Lemon Drop Puff Pastry Flowers

Equipment

  • flower cookie cutters
  • small mesh strainer

Ingredients
  

Puff Pastry Flowers

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 4 tbsp lemon curd
  • 1 egg

Buttercream Frosting

  • 2 cups powdered sugar plus additional for dusting
  • 1/2 stick softened butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 cup half and half

Instructions
 

Puff Pastry Flowers

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Remove 1 sheet puff pastry from freezer. Allow to thaw until pliable.
  • Using the bigger of the two cookie cutters, cut out flower shapes into puff pastry. If you're using the cutters I have linked below, you will get 12 flowers total from 1 sheet.
  • Cut into each flower with the smaller of the two cookie cutters, creating a space for the lemon curd. Poke the inside of the smaller flower with a fork.
  • Fill the smaller flowers with lemon curd.
  • Brush the edges of each puff pastry flower with egg wash (1 egg beaten + 1 tsp water).
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool.
  • While flowers are baking, make frosting.

Buttercream Frosting

  • Using a hand mixer, beat together powdered sugar, softened butter, vanilla and half & half. You may need to adjust the amount of half & half, depending on the consistency you want.
  • When the flowers have cooled, pipe frosting on to each flower.
  • Dust with powdered sugar.

Flower Cookie Cutters

The above cookie cutters are the exact ones I used for these lemon drop puff pastry flowers. While these flowers are adorable, you can make them any shape you’d like. Try them with stars or circles instead! Below is another flower cookie cutter option if you’d like them to all be the same shape.

You will also need a small mesh strainer to dust the powdered sugar on each flower. Any will do, but I love the strainer below.

CAN YOU MAKE THESE AHEAD OF TIME?

These are best served the same day you bake them, but can be baked the day prior if necessary. Just make sure to dust on the powdered sugar right before serving.

BUTTERCREAM FROSTING NOTES

Many lemon curd cookies do not include frosting. I find the sweetness in the frosting really helps balance out the tartness of the lemon curd in these delicious treats.
