Puff pastry is an ingredient that is found in the freezer aisle of many grocery stores all across the country. It's basically a light and flaky pastry that sort of "puffs up" when it's baked. Puff pastry is also a very versatile ingredient that can be used to make everything from dinner to desserts. In fact, we especially love using it to make puff pastry desserts that are bake-shop quality! If you've never worked with puff pastry before or you've been in search of tasty puff pastry recipe ideas we think it's time you go pick up a package (or two!), and discover a fun new way to make an easy dinner or dessert.
Below, we've put together a collection of some of our favorite puff pastry recipes that we know you're going to love!
