Puff Pastry Cookies

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before that Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry is MSPI-friendly, and I love it! Such a great time-saver!

Here's a fun cookie that you can adapt to any holiday, occasion and taste. Use whatever cookie cutter you like, or just cut the dough into 3-inch strips.

The original recipe says to use caramel sauce, but I used jam instead. Use your favorite flavor of jam. I used apricot with great results!

Puff Pastry Cookies

1 sheet Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry
3 tbsp. jam
3 tbsp. chopped nuts, such as almonds, walnuts or pecans

Thaw pastry sheet at room temperature for 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 400°F.

Unfold pastry sheet on lightly floured surface. Roll into 14" x 10" rectangle. Cut out shapes or cut into strips. Place on baking sheet. Brush with jam and sprinkle with nuts.

Bake 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack.

Okay...I'm not the best at venturing beyond the norm in our household for cooking and baking, which is why I'm so happy you have this blog. I'm trying to psych myself up for the diet starting in mid-April. Where would I find Pepperidge Farm Puff pasty? Any grocery store?

P.S. I'll probably ask you quite often where to find food items.

skaczmarek: You can find puff pastry in the freezer section. It's usually near the frozen pie crusts. And I'm always happy to answer your questions! ;)

Love your blog! My daughter had MSPI for her first year as well so I understand the diet changes. She is now 17 months and developed a contact allergy to milk so we are still dairy free at our home.

We are still working on modifying and changing recipes but its so rewarding when you get a great out come. Happy cooking!

I'll look forward to reading more of your recipes.
