If you are wondering what Angel Wings are then you surely grew up in America. Angel Wings is Plamiers, they are light, flaky and melt in you mouth cookies. I grew up eating Angel Wings for evening tea time. We got them from the local bakery shop that made all the baked goodies both savory and sweet. Pastries shops are a newer thing in Goa.
This goan classic has a bit of a twist. I love roasted nuts in my desserts and sweets but I don’t enjoy them much as a snack. My take on this recipe was to add roasted almonds and to reduce the amount of sugar. If you are allergic to nuts just skip them. It’s the easiest cookie to make.
- 1 pack or 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry thawed overnight in the refrigerator
- 8 tbsp of granulated sugar
- 6 tbsp of almond meal (optional)
- 8 tbsp of almonds crushed lightly
Preheat the oven to 400 degree F and lightly spray two cookie sheets or add parchment paper.
Spread out each puff pastry sheet at a time leave one in the refrigerator while working with the other. Sprinkle almond flour then crushed almonds and finally the granulated sugar. Then gently use a rolling-pin to roll the sugar and almonds into the dough.
From each end roll the sheet to the middle. Lightly press the together. Wrap it with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 15 to 20 minutes till a bit firm. With a sharp knife cut into 1/4″ thick .
Lay the slice and gently flatten the cookie to look likes wings. It may be a little out of shape don’t worry they will bake right.
Bake till light golden brown for about 10-12 minutes. Turn them over and bake for another 5-7 minutes. Be watchful as they easily burn.
Once out of the oven you can sprinkle more granulated sugar if you like.
Enjoy with a nice hot cup of tea or coffee. You can check out more Goan Recipes here.
