Don’t you just love desserts that require minimal efforts but are irresistibly delicious? No kneading or proofing required.

I certainly do. One of my favorite ways to make a quick and scrumptious desert is to use puff pastry, which is a staple in my freezer.

A few years ago, I made German Hausfreunde Cookies, which are essentially sandwich cookies with almond paste. And although there were a few steps involved, the result totally overcame my expectations.


  • 14 oz sheet puff pastry defrosted
  • 10 oz almond paste
  • 1 orange zested
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3 tbsp apricot jam
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp sliced almonds
  • 3 tbsp flour


  • Preheat the oven 425 F and cover a rectangular baking sheet with a parchment paper.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into a large rectangle, 2 inches shorter than the length of your baking sheet.
  • Cut the pastry in half lengthwise.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the almond paste with the 
orange zest and knead until blended*. (See the notes regarding the almond paste)
  • Divide almond paste into 2 even pieces and roll each peace into a log approximately 1 inch shorter than the length of puff pastry.
  • Place one almond log on one half of puff pastry. Brush the sides of the pastry with a beaten egg.
  • Fold 2 shorter ends of the pastry to cover the almond log. Fold 2 longer ends over the almond log and flip the log so that the seam was at the bottom.
