French Fridays with Dorie – Mustard Batons

It feels good to be back among my FFwD peeps. As I said a few days ago, I’ve been buried knee deep in cupcakes, so this week’s recipe was the perfect little fork in the road. They were simple, delicious and not a dollop of frosting was needed. I’m definitely excited about these… especially when each one is just 2 small points.

Just gather your puff pastry, some dijon mustard, an egg, a splash of water & a jar of poppy seeds and you’re in business! You’ll be rolling out and twisting up these breadsticks in no time. They’re fabulous on their own, as appetizers to a fancy four-course meal or sidled up to a down-home chicken dinner. Definitely on my go-to list for quick and easy snacks!

Cute idea to twist the batons! It gives them a real breadstick feel.

Such a nice twist on the batons. I’ll have to do that next time. Great photos. Is that glass one of those French ones that has the bee embossed on the side? I love those.

I am with the crowd on complimenting your great photos – truly lovely. Nana and I loved this recipe. We are big mustard fans and puff pastry fans…putting them together could only yield success 🙂 Though next time I will definitely remember to TWIST mine too !! And thanks for the points calculator…..I guess I could have had another 🙂
