New Year's Eve ranks among the most popular parties of the year. There are many exciting ways to celebrate it. Some people prefer a cozy atmosphere with a small house party, while others prefer big celebrations with lots of dancing.

If you're planning an unforgettable New Year's Eve party this year, you won't want to miss out on today's recipe. Using a clever and simple technique, you'll make excellent spoons from puff pastry right in your kitchen. Sounds delicious, doesn't it?

Find the entire step-by-step recipe in the video below.

One glance is enough to fall head over heels for these ultra-cute spoons filled with cream cheese and salmon. It doesn't get any better.

Ingredients:

  • 1 puff pastry,
  • 1 egg yolk,
  • About 2 fl oz of milk,
  • 3.5 oz of cream cheese,
  • 8 slices of smoked salmon,
  • A few lettuce leaves,
  • Sesame seeds for garnishing.

How to Prepare:

Step 1. Begin the recipe by preparing the puff pastry spoons. Lay out a sheet of ready-made dough on your kitchen counter. Place a tablespoon directly on the dough, then cut around it to create the shape of the spoon.

Step 2. Next, transfer the spoons to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Stand an aluminum roll vertically in the center of the sheet. Position the puff pastry spoons directly on the aluminum roll.

This interesting trick will shape the pastry into unique spoon forms.

Step 4. Finally, sprinkle each piece of dough with sesame seeds. Bake the prepared spoons in a preheated oven for 15 minutes at 374 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 5. While the spoons are baking, transfer the cream cheese to a pastry bag. After the pastries have cooled, decorate each spoon with the cream cheese using your pastry bag. This step will be a piece of cake.
