I'm liking frozen puff pastry!!! A lot!!! (Especially since my pie crust making skills are virtually non-existent!) So now I have a list of projects using it! Here's one...
this project, I placed a square piece of puff pastry in a mini-pie
plate. I filled the center with wilted spinach and 3 kinds of grated
cheese (mozarella, cheddar and parmesan), then I place a piece of
quick-melt sandwich cheese on top before bringing the corners in the
middle (and leaving slits as part of the design). Brush the top with egg wash. The pastry baked in a
preheated 400F oven for about 20 minutes or so. I knew it was done
when the kitchen was filled with a glorious smell!
was bowled over! He thought I finally got it (pie crust, that is)
until I told him I "cheated" with puff pastry. His reply? It's not
cheating, it's a short cut!
I love this short cut!
