Grab your ingredients!
– 3 puff pastry sheets – 1 cup (200 g) cream cheese (in room temperature) – ¼ cup chopped parsley – 1 tbsp grated lemon peel – ½ tsp salt – 10 small parsley sprigs
Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C) In a mixing bowl, put the cream cheese, salt, and grated lemon peels.
Finely chop the parsley and add into the mixture. Whisk the mixture until it gets a smooth consistency.
Put the puff pastry sheets on a floured surface and unroll the dough. Cut into 12 (1-inch) strips with a knife or a pizza cutter.
Wrap 1 or 2 strips around each metal cone to create a carrot shape.
Place them into a baking tray and brush each of them with egg yolk. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes (until it gets golden brown.) Take it from the oven and rest them for cooling.
Take the cheese cream mixture in a piping bag and pipe to each pastry.
Decorate each top with 1 parsley sprig.
