Puff Pastry Play

Meet my new favorite convenience product: puff pastry dough.

Meet my new favorite convenience product: puff pastry dough. 

I love how you call pull a sheet of frozen dough out of box, shape it and mix with basic ingredients, and it instantly transforms into a oh-so-gourmet-looking masterpiece. Its crisp, buttery layers quickly found a way to my pastry-loving heart.


Making Barfoot Contessa’s Savory Palmiers got me re-addicted to using puff pastry. (Photo note: When I made the recipe with a friend, we were in a vacation cabin and used a wine bottle as a make-shift rolling pin.)

There are endless ways to get creative with puff pastry. Next on my list is wrapping it around a honey-covered brie round, but here’s a few other recipes I want to try.


 Puff Pastry Cheese Tray from Southern Living


 Plum Puff Dumplings from Food and Wine


 Pistachio Pastry Twists from Oxmoor House


Beef Pot Pie topper from Real Simple

The Pepperidge Farm web site also has a good variety of recipes for puff pastry.
