CREAM CHEESE PUFFS with a CRISPY PISTACHIO TWIST

CREAM CHEESE PUFFS with a CRISPY PISTACHIO TWIST 




With the second wave happening all over the world, especially in India, let's keep everyone in our prayers and stay safe you guys! Whoever you may be, if you are reading this, please ask your family and loved ones to stay indoors as much as possible as the symptoms aren't even detectable. We are in this together and we shall overcome this together with the help of Allah.
 
Days of Ramadan are flying by and it breaks my heart to think that it's already the 14th of Ramadan. Trying to find time for Ibadah amidst all the house chores being a home maker, or an employee or whatever you occupation might be, can make things difficult. The best you can do is to moisten your tongue with zikr. This is a reminder to myself first.



So this Ramadan I have been looking forward to share easy and less time consuming recipes that you guys could easily follow and enjoy! These Crispy cream cheese puffs were an overnight invention. I had no clue if this could be good or bad but had my hopes high coz you can never go wrong when you have sweetened Condensed milk in a recipe. Isn't it? 😁



I happened to see this on reel on the explore page of Instagram, where a lady was preparing these Puff pastries, last week at midnight. I just loved the idea of puffs, sweetened Condensed milk and pistachios. But I felt that it would be too sweet to my liking. So to bring in a balance I sliced and placed a Kiri cheese cube inside these puffs and oh boy! The family went all bonkers over it! I felt so content and happy to see all the smiling faces and especially when my LO comes to me saying, mama please make more of these again. What else does a mother want to hear? Alhamdulilah 🥰

I know it sounds divine! Let me warn you, these are going to vanish into thin air.. So what are we waiting for? 

Let's get to the recipe! 

Ingredients :

  • 5 Square Puff pastry sheets (will give 15-20 nos) 
  • 5 Kiri Cream Cheese Cubes
  • 1/2 ground pistachios
  • 1/2 cup broken thin vermicelli 
  • 1/2 +1/4 cup Condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp butter/ghee

Instructions :

  1. To make the filling, in a strong bottom pan, add in 2 tbsp butter and add in your broken vermicelli and Sautee it well in butter. 
  2. Next add in your ground pistachio. 

  3. Now switch off your flame and add in your Condensed milk and reserve the rest for pouring when serving. 
  4. Combine well and set aside. 
  5. Roll out a thawed square Puff sheet and scoop and place your filling in the Puff sheet and place your sliced Kiri cheese cubes horizontally and carefully wrap the filling. 
  6. Now using a sharp large knife cut the wrap vertically 3-4 cuts and bake them in a preheated oven at 220°C on a baking tray that has been lined with baking paper. 

  7. Now using a pastry brush, brush the outsides of the tiny puffs and allow to bake until golden for around 20 minutes. 
  8. Once the golden puffs are removed from the oven, drizzle in the sweetened Condensed milk and enjoy warm! 😍
