FFWD - Mustard Batons


Another quick and easy French Fridays with Dorie recipe.

Mustard batons are simply dijon mustard on puff pastry that is finished with a dusting of seeds. Dorie's recipe called for poppy seeds but I decided to use some black sesame seeds. I went easy on the mustard but would have been happy with more.

These were delicious and would be perfect for a fancy cocktail party or a casual get together. I loved this technique and immediately started thinking of other combinations; honey and mustard, mango chutney, pimento cheese... The options are endless.

Around My French Table is full of easy recipes like this that make cooking accessible, and more importantly, joyful. Check out the rest of the French Fridays with Dories group, here.

  9. I used white sesame on some and caraway on the others. Boy I liked that caraway...but it is all good :) Nana and I loved the mustard recipe and can't wait to play around with more variations. Right after we finish all the Easter goodies....
