French Fridays with Dorie: Mustard Batons

April 22, 2011

Mmmmm….mustard! Aaaah….puff pastry! Put the two together, and what do you get? Delicious Mustard Batons!

Mine look nothing like the ones in the book, but they were tasty!

I’m a long-time mustard fan, so much so that I was planning to make these before they were selected for the French Fridays with Dorie group. Weeks ago, I asked Michele to bake these with me, and then I saw that the group selected this recipe for April. Perfect timing! We decided to wait to post until today. I made these with the last bit of homemade puff pastry that I had in my freezer and Grey Poupon Country Dijon mustard. They were easy to make and were a lovely buttery, mustardy accompaniment to big bowls of soup for dinner.

And for dessert, how about some Cinnamon Torpedoes? I took some puff pastry trimmings, brushed them with egg, and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar. Delicious!

The French Fridays with Dorie group is not publishing recipes. We all have a copy of Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan and you should too! You can also find the recipe here on Dorie Greenspan’s website (you can see what they’re supposed to look like too!).


  1. These were great, weren’t they? and i love your idea for using up the scraps!

  2. Any time you start with puff pastry you know you’re going to end up with something delicious 🙂 Whenever I have leftover puff pastry scraps I use the cinnamon sugar trick, it’s very, very dangerous!

  3. Puff pastry is delicious by itself, but with mustard, oh dear, that sounds REALLY delicious!!!

    Love that napkin!

  4. I made a batch of these last fall, and I was actually disappointed by them. They’re the only Dorie recipe I’ve ever made that wasn’t terrific. Who knows what happened? I’m glad you liked them.

  5. These were tasty – they surprised me at how good such a simple recipe could be. Love your cinnamon torpedoes too. Happy Easter Jill!

  6. We are mustard lovers here as well…can’t wait to get to these…yours look so good!

  7. Puff pastry treats for dinner and dessert sounds awesome! I never would have thought to put mustard with puff pastry, but it sounds really good.

  8. I think your batons turned out well! And I love the cinnamon torpedoes. Yum!!
