This is a collection of easy recipes made with puff pastry that are perfect for entertaining. However, you can make them any time you need a snack or a light meal.
I love pies and pastries! I grew up eating them and learned to appreciate how versatile they can be. Savory or sweet, pies are great for any meal or time of the day.
Sweet for the morning, savory for lunch or dinner. They are even great as appetizers for parties.
If you visit Romania and especially Bucharest, the capital of the country where I grew up, you will find those at every corner of the street.
There are so many bakeries and pastry businesses that you cannot even imagine. Pretzels, savory pastries filled with cheese, meat, sausages or hot dogs, or sweet ones filled with apples, pumpkin or farmer’s cheese.
Options are for everyone and for every taste.
Some of them are so popular that people are waiting in line for them. It is a “on the go” type of meal when you run around the city with business. It is also a very cheap way of eating.
However, there is nothing better than home made pastries. You can have them as appetizers, snacks, breakfast and anything in between.
In the past, I used to be afraid to work with puff pastry, but I discovered how easy it is, and since then, I love making all kinds of pastries with it.
Here you have my collection of recipes made with puff pastry. Most of them are savory, but there is one you will love, the sweet pastry with farmer cheese.
It is in fact one of my most popular recipes on the blog. Enjoy!
