Puff pastry ventagli are a typical Italian tea pastry. Ventagli in Italian means fans, and they are called fans because of their shape.

The directions are really easy, you just need a few ingredients: puff pastry and sugar. That’s it!

I want to show you how to make a homemade puff pastry. Obviously, if you don’t want to make it, skip this part and use a pre-made one.

For the puff pastry:

Making puff pastry at home is not hard. To be honest, it’s just long because of the resting time. Following the traditional recipe you need to make 2 doughs. For the first one: mix flour, water and salt until combined, then let it set for 30 minutes in the fridge. While you wait, make the second one mixing butter and flour and let it set in the fridge for 1 hour.

Roll the first dough with a rolling pin and put the second one in its centre. Fold it inside the first (like a package) and roll it again. Then fold the dough a few times. Because of the folding process, the puff pastry will have those amazing layers that everybody loves.

For the ventagli:

Pre-heat the oven to 200° C.

Roll the pastry in a 5 mm thick rectangle. (If you use pre-made puff pastry just open it and remove the baking paper inside).

Dust your surface generously with sugar. Lay the pastry on it and press gently. Dust more sugar on top and add cinnamon or zest, if desired.

Now both sides are covered with sugar. Find the centre and roll both sides towards the inside.

Cut each indiviual ventaglio 1 cm thick.

Move to a baking tray covered with baking paper. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden.
