Mustard Batons

Mustard Batons

I have said this so many times, but do you ever look at a recipe and think to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?”? I always say that when I run into a recipe that could have helped me on numerous occasions, especially when I was running against the clock.

Look at that face of satisfaction! She loved them! She dove at the batons as soon as she rolled out of bed.

These Mustard Batons are as easy as a puff pastry treat will ever get. Even Dorie used store-bought pastry to make these! I am very familiar with making puff pastry, but who am I to argue with Queen Dorie? So, I went and bought a couple of sheets of puff pastry, reached for my favorite Dijon mustard – Excuse me, do you have any Grey Poupon? – and then I contemplated between black sesame seeds, rosemary, poppy seeds, or plain sesame seeds.


  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • flour, for rolling
  • ½-cup dijon mustard
  • 1 egg
  • sesame seeds and/or poppy seeds, for topping
