  • 4 oz puff or flaky pastry
  • 1 egg white lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar superfine granulated
  • 1 1/2 level tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 oz blanched almonds chopped


  • Knead the pastry trimmings together very lightly and roll out to an oblong measuring 10 x 35.5 cm (4 x 14 inches).
  • Brush the egg white over the pastry to within 1 cm (1/2 inch) of the edges.
  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle with the nuts over the pastry. Cut the pastry crossways to give strips 1/2 cm (1 inch) wide and 4 cm (4 inches) long.
  • Sacristains can then be shaped in many ways. The strips can be twisted, shaped into circles or tied into knots.
  • Place them on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 220°C (425°F) mark 7 for about 10 minutes until golden brown.
