Quick easy and tasty.



Put flour in a bowl, add salt and sugar and mix. Then pour the yeast and add the warm water. Let the yeast bubble, add the oil, vanilla, and egg. Mix well and let rise for 10 - 30 minutes.

Pour some flour on the board and roll out the dough. You can fill it with a lot of options like : lemon curd, sweet cheese, cooked cinnamon apples, etc. If you want to make the dough savory DON'T add sugar to the dough. Stuff with cheese and spinach, mashed potato, etc.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes until it's ready and turns a golden brown color.

Mix together and add 1 egg yolk plus enough milk to make 2/3 cup liquid. Blend until moistened; divide dough in half. Roll bottom half of pastry to fit greased 9x13 inch jelly roll pan. Add 1 1/2 cups cornflakes sprinkled over the surface. Peel and core enough apples to lay sliced rows over pastry (covering). Mix 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle over apples. Place second half of the roll-out pastry on top. Pinch the edges together with milk. Whip the egg white and brush on top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45-50 minutes. While still warm, drizzle with icing. Cut into bars or squares.

Cream butter and sugar together and spread on strips of dough. Spread with desired fruit filling to which extract has been added.

Mix the first 3 ingredients as pie crust. Put crust mixture into a jelly roll pan. Bring 1 cup water, 1/2 cup butter to a boil. Remove from heat, add flour and eggs, one at a time. Add almond and salt.

I am looking for a recipe for a pastry which is a ball shape like an 'aebleskiver', but a pastry dough rather than a pancake dough. I want to use it with a cream filling for hors d'oeuvres. Thanks.

Sounds like you are looking for a cream puff recipe. You can form it into little balls. Just do a search for cream puffs on recipe sites. I have made them and filled them with everything from chicken salad to creamy, sweet fillings.


Something fast and easy that looks impressive would be phyllo shells--in your grocery's freezer case. They're ready made, and can be filled sweet or savory.

The pastry is called choux pastry and you can use it for sweet or savoury fillings.

Try the frozen roll (bread) dough. You can bake it and make monkey bread or make fried dough.
