puff pastries

Holiday feasting needn’t leave you feeling puffy when you have these crispy, delicious and light-as-air recipes on your serving trays. With a single batch of fresh or defrosted puff pastry dough you can roll, top and stuff a buffet of different appetizers.

Though intimidating to some home cooks, puff pastry is one of the easiest ingredients to work with, as tears can quickly be repaired by patching with excess dough, and unbaked pastry can be stored in the freezer – if tightly sealed in plastic wrap – for up to a month, always at-the-ready to make entertaining a snap!
