20 Playful Ways to Use Puff Pastry

20 Playful Ways to Use Puff Pastry

Today, I gathered my favorite recipes to show how you can utilize puff pastry (or savory pastry dough) in a playful way. Savory tarts, puff pastry logs turned into fancy appetizers, fruit wrappers, you name it! Puff pastry is decadent comfort food, but with an elegant touch.

Below are the photos and links to the recipes of my 20 favorite puff pastry dishes. It's fun to look back at what I've fed my family and see the wide variety of cuisines, ingredients and techniques. I hope this inspires you to be a little adventurous in the kitchen and come up with your own dishes using one of my favorite ingredients.
