Would you guess that these babies didn’t go near the oven? Instead, a sandwich press took the wheel 🙂 Which means that they didn’t take very long to whip up…. 20 minutes!

Simply cut out:

This would be a good recipe to play around with, lots of flavours and fillings would work well! You could even add some whipped cream on top!

Here is the recipe:

Petit-Four Stacks
Ingredients:
Wafer Pastry layers:
1 egg
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp sugar
25g butter, melted
Icing/Filling:
15g butter, melted
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 Tbsp cocoa
Hot water
To fill:
Jam or chopped banana
Makes 10, roughly

Instructions:
For the pastry layers, turn on your sandwich press (one with flat grills!). Mix together all the ingredients. When the press is heated, dollop on tablespoon-ful sized amounts and close the lid. After a minute, check to see if it is lightly golden around the edges. Quickly take it out and cut out the layers with your chosen cutter. Leave to cool and repeat the process.

To fill, mix together the butter, icing sugar, cocoa and a dash of hot water until your have a thick icing. Spoon into a piping bag, and onto 2/3 of the pastry wafers, pipe an outline. On the remaining 1/3, pipe whatever pattern you like, squiggles or something! In the the outlines, spoon in some jam or put in a piece of banana. Stack in threes, with your patterned layer on top.

And that’s it! They last quite well, although I would serve on the day you make them. Makes about 10 altogether.
