Coconut, Walnut & Date Puffs



1 cup Supreme Desiccated Coconut
½ cup Supreme Walnuts, finely chopped
½ cup dates, finely chopped
1 cup condensed milk
½ tsp Supreme Cardamom Powder
1 sheet of ready rolled puff pastry
¼ cup apricot jam
3 tbsp Supreme Desiccated Coconut
¼ tsp Supreme Green Food Colour
¼ tsp Supreme Orange Food Colour
¼ tsp Supreme Red Food Colour


Equally divide 3tbsp desiccated coconut into 3 different bowls. Add ⅓ tsp of water and ¼ tsp of each colour into the divided bowls. Mix well and sprinkle coloured desiccated coconut into an even layer on the microwave proof dish and heat in the microwave until fully dry. Alternatively, you can bake in an oven on low temperature until fully dry. Cool and store in an airtight jar.

In a bowl mix together 1 cup dessicated coconut, walnuts, dates, condensed milk, and cardamom powder and set aside.

Unroll pastry and cut into 2 inch squares. Make thin vertical cuts within each square then add a spoonful of coconut, walnut and date mixture in the middle and spread out into a log. Brush the top and bottom edges of the pastry with water, fold over and press lightly to seal. Place the seal side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat the same with remaining pastry and coconut mixture. Preheat the oven to 180°c. Brush with egg/ milk and bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden. In the meantime, heat apricot jam in the microwave for 30 seconds. As soon as the puffs come out of the oven brush each one with apricot jam and sprinkle over the coloured dessicated coconut. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Note: any desired shape and size puffs can be made.
