Ingredients

Directions

For the Puff Pastry: Preheat the oven to 360 degrees. Place the puff pastry on a lightly floured work surface. Lightly dust the top of the puff pastry with flour. Use a rolling pin to roll the puff pastry into a rectangle 1/4-inch. Use a 4-inch fluted cutter to cut 8 circles from the puff pastry. Remove the scraps and space the circles 2 inches apart on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Combine the corn syrup and water in a small mixing bowl and mix well. Use a pastry brush to coat the top of each circle a nice, shiny glaze; it will also enhance the flavor of the baked puff pastry. Place the puff pastry circles in the oven until well risen and evenly browned 20 to 25 minutes. To keep the circles from rising unevenly, I place six 3-inch-high timbale molds (one in each corner and two in the center) on the baking sheet with the circles. Then, I place a wire rack on top of the molds. As the puff pastry rises, the rack will keep it level. You can also place another sheet of parchment paper directly on top of the puff pastry circles and bake. The slight weight of the parchment paper will keep the puff pastry even as it bakes and rises. Remove the baked puff pastry circles from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.;
