Let’s become very best friends, puff pastry.

January 2, 2012

Cooking, Prototype

Today was a wonderful day, in that I was home from work before 4 o’clock! Woo-hoo! I was so excited, I even got in a tiny nap! Yay!

The downside is that my internal clock was confused and within an hour after getting home I was completely ravenous, and it was still early in the day. Lloyd heated up some t.v. dinners, but that wasn’t enough food for my angry belly. I wanted some dessert. I’ve had a box of puff pastry sitting in my freezer for the longest time – I don’t even know why (or when) I bought it. Now seemed like as good a time as any to try something with it.

I hacked off a frozen end, broke the folded pieces apart and let them thaw on my disgustingly discolored cookie sheet while the oven heated.

It's discolored from using it as a water pan for bread.  Or so I say.

Baked ’em up, then slathered them with lemon curd (which I also can’t remember buying) and added some sliced strawberries for a flaky, sweet & sour sandwich. Worrying about the top not feeling pretty enough, I used up some of Brad’s gross skim milk and made a glaze. Brad – new rule: Drink up that gallon before you leave Nebraska.

I couldn't get a nice picture.


Tomorrow I won’t mess around with the t.v. dinner. Straight to dessert for me!

    Wow Lauren….those look good enough to serve in a fancy restaurant!
