Puff Pastry Cookies With Almond and Rose Filling

Rose scent make me think of old ladies, I know it is a stereotyped image but I can’t help it. You know the Miss Marple type of old lady, especially the Miss Marple played by Joan Hickson, she is my favourite in the part.

Puff Pastry Cookies With Almond and Rose Filling

When we moved here I was full of garden entusiasm and energy so I planted a lot of sweet smelling roses something I am very happy for every spring and summer. Old-fashioned roses are soothing for my soul and to be able to put your nose in the middle of one and inhale the perfume is a wonderful experience. I unconsciously close my eyes and try to feel all the fragrances notes. oh oh, I am getting carried away here. Anyway, I like rose scent very much and I like it in food too and I have a daughter who likes it as well so I made these cookies if you can call something made with puff pastry cookies, maybe not but I do it anyway. Almonds and rose is a perfect combination and I think I will use this rose-almond paste in other pastries and cakes.
