Three ways with puff pastry
Use frozen dough to make fuss-free starters and sweets
Guests on the way? Make a fuss-free, flaky appetizer or dessert with frozen store-bought puff pastry.
A savory Middle Eastern spice mix, zaatar typically includes sesame seeds, thyme, marjoram, and sumac and is often sprinkled onto pita bread spread with thick, strained yogurt (labneh). Here, we sprinkled zaatar onto puff-pastry straws and paired them with a creamy, garlicky yogurt dip.
Garlicky Yogurt Dip
This creamy dip is a delicious, cooling complement to Zaatar straws.
These salty, rich straws are terrific with cocktails.
Nibble these with tea or coffee.
An intensely flavored mushroom-wine filling, a simple custard, and voilà ― miniature, quichelike puffs.
Perfect for a wintertime cocktail party.
Burnt-Caramel Rum-Banana Tart
Try different fruits and syrups or glazes ― raspberries with chocolate sauce, for instance, or apricots with blueberry preserves, heated just until they're liquefied. Use fruits that aren't too juicy, or else the crust will be soggy.
