Quick tips when preparing your coconut raisin chocolate puff wheels
When working with your dough, make sure to work on a floured surface to avoid the dough sticking to the surface. It also helps to dust your hands with flour.
After rolling up the pastry, place it in the fridge for 20 minutes before you cut it into circles. This will help the pastry and filling to set before you place it into the oven.
Serve these tasty puff wheels with your favourite hot beverage for teatime.
