Easy Stick Pies for Christmas

These stick pies are easy to make. Do they look Christmas-y?

Ingredients: 8 sticks

Frozen puff pastry
2
Hazelnuts
10
Granulated sugar
1/2 tablespoon
Cocoa powder
1/2 tablespoon
Egg white
Approx. 1/2 egg

Steps

1. Defrost the puff pastry. Chop the nuts and combine with granulated sugar and cocoa powder. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
2. Brush a generous amount of egg whites on the puff pastry. Sprinkle the nuts-and-sugar mixture from Step 1. Cover with another puff pastry with egg whites spread on the inner side.
3. Stretch the puff pastry with a rolling pin until they're about 1.5 times the original width. Cut into eighths and spread egg white on the surface.
4. Twist into candy cane shapes. Press with your fingers to secure the shape.
5. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Transfer onto a paper towel and let cool down to finish.
6. You could use almonds, peanuts, or other kinds of nuts instead of hazelnuts.
