The Magician’s Nephew Tea Party/Book Club: Fotina Flower Puffed Pastry


So every Wednesday, starting in October, I have been a part of a Tea Party/Bible Study/Book Club on The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. This is different from my book club and the Book Club Picks I have been reviewing (and desperately need to catch up on). I also need to catch up on these recipes, week two was Chami Spice Ginger Plum Tea, Dark Chocolate Ginger Scones, Curried Egg Salad Triple Stacks Sandwiches, Turkey-Apple Tea Sandwiches, Fotina Flower Puffed Pastry, and Lemon Gingerbread Cake.

I couldn’t share the recipes in October as I was in the middle of Horrorfest IX, so I am catching up and of course after sandwiches we have our sides.

And food to go with.

This comes from Tea Time Magazine. I did change the recipe a bit as I took out the olive salad, I forgot to buy it. Oops!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Sheet of Frozen Puff Pastry, Slightly Thawed
  • 6 (1-inch) Cubes Fotina Cheese
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon of Water

Directions:

  1. Preheat the Oven at 400 Degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Using 2 1/4 inch flower-shaped cutter, cut 12 flowers from puff pastry sheet.
  4. Using a 1-inch round cutter, cut out and discard centers from 6 flowers.
  5. Stack a cutout flower on top of a whole flower and place on a prepared baking sheet.
  6. Repeat for remaining flowers. Press edges together using a fork.
  7. Place a cheese cube in the center of each flower.
  8. In a small bowl, combine egg and water, whisking well to make an egg wash.
  9. Using a pastry brush, brush tops of flowers with egg wash.
  10. Bake until flowers are puffed and golden brown, 10-12 mins.
  11. Serve Warm

These weren’t bad but very cheesy. I think they would have been better if I had put in something with the cheese, the olive spread or basil or something.

But otherwise tea was wonderful.
