Cinnamon Twist Easter Bunnies and Raspberry Jam Flowers


Cinnamon Twist Easter Bunnies and Raspberry Jam Flowers sit on a cooling rack on a grey counter top. Under the cooling rack is a blue and white checker tea towel. To the top left of the cooling rack is a pinch bowl with ground cinnamon. To the bottom of the cooling rack are two pinch bowls filled with raspberry jam and icing sugar glaze.


Did you know that Tenderflake puff pastry is "accidentally" vegan? Neither did I, until I made Liv B's Holiday Lentil Mushroom Loaf for Christmas this past year (and probably no surprise here - this lentil mushroom loaf recipe was absolutely delicious).


With Easter coming up quick and the weather feeling more Spring like, I decided to make these festive Cinnamon Twist Easter Bunnies and Raspberry Jam Flower puff pastry treats!


Both these recipes are so simple and quick to make, and are bound to put a smile on your friends and family's faces when they enjoy them over Easter dinner.

For my visual learners: How to Make the Raspberry Jam Flower


Step One: Add 1/2 tsp of raspberry jam to the centre of the puff pastry square.

Step Two: Fold the edges over the jam and twist the top to seal.

Aly flips the puff pastry over and shapes it into a circle or ball.


Step Four: Using a sharp knife, cut 8 petals into the jam puff pastry (do not cut into the middle). Aly's tip: cut the jam puff pastry into 4's. Then go back and cut the middle of the quarters. Volia - 8 petals!

In Aly's right hand is a sharp knife that pierces into the jam puff pastry. Her left hand holds the puff pastry steady.
