  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 50 g fresh yeast
  • 250 ml milk
  • 1 egg beaten

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 2 tblsp melted butter
  • 2 tblsp melted apricot jam

How to make Escargot: French Spiral Pastries

  1. Sift flour, salt, sugar and cinnamon together. Mix yeast with 2 tblsp of the milk until creamy and stir into the flour with the remaining milk and the egg.
  2. Mix to a dough well. Knead until smooth and shiny. Almost 10 minutes.
  3. Make large slices of the butter and keep it chilled. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a rectangle about 1 cm thick.
  4. Place about 1/3 sliced butter over the center strip of the dough, leaving a gap around the edges. Fold like an envelope. Chill this dough for 15 minutes.
  5. Roll out the dough again. Place 1/3 sliced butter in the center and fold like an envelope. Chill for another 15 minutes.
  6. Roll the dough again. Place the final 1/3 sliced butter and fold like an envelope. Chill for an additional 15 minutes.
  7. Finally roll out the dough into a large rectangle.
  8. Brush the inside with melted butter. Then empty out the cup of jam and spread it through and through, making sure you leave atleast a 1/4 inch boundary. Sprinkle with cinnamon and dried apricots.
  9. Roll up like a swiss roll. Cut into thin slices almost 15-16 pieces you should get out of this. Place them flat side down on a baking tray and leave to prove for 30 minutes.
  10. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180 degree. Bake for 15- 20 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Brush with additional jam on top.
