The Technique 

Chocolate Pastry Leaves 

When an elevated look is desired for beautiful pies, tarts & other dessert creations, a simple pastry finial may be the answer. They may be formed from Chocolate Pâte Sablée, Pâte SucréePâte Brisée or classic Pâte Sablée using traditional cookie or canapé cutters & with pastry wheels, knives or other tools. Although baking the garnishes ahead of time & adding them to desserts just before serving is always an option, consider attaching these items to the edges of tarts & pies before baking to create a lovely finished presentation.

How To Make Chocolate Pâte Sablée Pastry Leaves

Any good pie dough may be used to make a fine selection of garnishing elements but nothing quite beats the incredible rich flavor of Chocolate Pâte Sablée. Use this simple technique to attach designs to the outer edge of your creations using a bit of egg wash to secure them or bake them ahead.

Roll Chocolate Pâte Sablée to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut leaf-shaping using a paring knife. Use the tip to create grooves in the dough surface to mimic the fine details. Place them on a parchment paper-lined quarter sheet pan. Freeze 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Bake on the center oven rack approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely.
