An easy to make flavorful treat whether served as a snack or appetizer.


  • 1 puff pastry sheet (from 17.3 oz package), thawed
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, finely shredded
  • 1/2 cup of canned diced jalapenos, drained
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing (I recommend Marie's brand), if desired


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Unfold pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry sheet into a 12 x 12 inch square, cut into 2 inch squares (36), prick each square with a fork and place the squares onto a large baking sheet.

Bake until golden brown, about 8 minutes, remove from oven and press down the centers of the squares with the back of a small spoon to make an indentation.


Spoon 1/2 teaspoon each of first the cheese and then the jalapenos onto each square, bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes, place squares on a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes.

Top each with the blue cheese dressing before serving.

I've been experimenting with frozen puff pastry off and on for the past few months, and came upon these tasty sweet treats that only need three simple ingredients to make. These freeze well wrapped in wax paper, placed in a freezer container, and thawed at room temp or heated in the microwave for future treats.




Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Unfold puff pastry. Evenly spread 4 strips with jam then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the sugar and place each coated strip one on top of the other with the uncoated strip on top of all. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.

Very lightly butter two baking sheets if they are not non-stick. If you only have one baking sheet place half of the pastries in the next step back in the freezer until ready to bake.

Slice the jam filled pastry strip in to 1/4 inch thick slices, place on baking sheet(s) about 4 inches apart and sprinkle with the remaining sugar (1 tablespoon if baking in 2 batches).

Bake until puffy and golden, about 15 to 20 minutes. Allow pastries to cool and enjoy.

As some of you know I am definitely not good at baking, but when I saw an easy puff pastry recipe for Apple Strudel at the Pepperidge Farm website I couldn't resist at least trying! I also couldn't resist making a couple of changes; probably not a good idea when you aren't very good at baking, but I must have done something right because the strudel turned out yummy :-)


  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. all purpose flour plus flour for rolling
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. dried cherries, finely chopped
  • 1 sheet from a 17.3 oz package Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed


Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork. Stir in sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl, add apples, cherries, and almonds and toss well to coat.

Unfold the pastry sheet on floured work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 16 x 12 inch rectangle.

With the short side facing you, spoon the apple mixture onto the bottom half of the pastry sheet to within 1 inch of the edge, roll up like a jelly roll and place seam side down onto a baking sheet. Tuck the ends under to seal, brush the pastry with the egg mixture, cut several slits in the top of the pastry and bake until the pastry is golden brown, about 35 minutes.


Let the pastry cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 20 minutes and serve.

As mentioned before I am not much of a traditional baker but wanted some fresh 'out of the oven' cookies yesterday and since was already planning to make some puff pastry cherry tarts decided to use some of the cherries and cherry syrup from pie filling for these.

If you have never used frozen puff pastry, you are missing out on a really good product. It can be used in savory dishes and sweet. Topping individual servings of chicken pot pie with puff pastry instead of a biscuit topping is one of my favorites.
