    Thanks a mill! I do have other "real" presents to give too, so I don't know why I put this extra pressure on myself 😂🙈

    No problem:

    Like I said, I needed to substitute glucose syrup with honey this time around and it still worked well. I also used vanilla extract instead of vanilla bean paste.

    I also find it sets in a few hours, if you're impatient like me and don't want to wait overnight.

    I find patience is key with this one and a sugar thermometer is vital. Also, be prepared for a very tired arm by the end of it 🙈

    Thank you! I love peanut butter, but it never occurred to me to make a (kind of) Danish pastry with it.

    I have puff pastry on my shopping list now 😋

    I keep dough blobs in the freezer so they're always to hand (and quick to run up in advance of a party, like the frozen gougere dough that also didn't last long enough to photograph...)

    Pastry was 2:1 plain flour to butter (400g:200g) + 4 tablespoons caster sugar. Mix flour and sugar in bowl. Cube the cold butter, rub in with fingers to breadcrumb consistency. Add 4 tablespoons iced water and mix with blunt knife. then bring together and knead briefly until smooth. Flatten, wrap in clingfilm and put in fridge for 30 mins.
