There is nothing like ladies game night.
There is also nothing like enjoying a gorgeous fresh Cream Cheese Danish with friends!
Recently I had the opportunity to sneak away (go somewhere withOUT my wonderful children) and have some grown up conversation with other like-minded ladies. It was full of fun, games, lots of laughter and most importantly in my opinion, delicious desserts made from Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry!
As a foodie, I find that Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry is a must have in my freezer. I have made so many dishes using the gorgeous, flaky pastry. What I enjoy about their puff pastry is the buttery and perfectly flaked pastry it turns out every time. If you need a way to add some flare without hassle, you should try using their puff pastry, you will get many smiles and ooh’s and ahh’s when you bring one of the many tasty desserts or meals to the table.
There are so many things you can make with this pastry, no matter what type of dinner or party you might be planning. I like the easy to make palmiers (elephant ears), Nutella puffs (Oh yes), Steak and Guinness Pie (such a cozy meal), and the Marmalade Cream Cheese Danish (recipe below).
After I attended the Ladies Game Night and feasted on PUFF PASTRY sweets and savories, my mind started crafting ideas of what I might make with puff pastry. The results during that drive home where based on the movie I just saw with my children (Paddington, of course) and a previous pastry using Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry that I made during the holidays.
Voila – the Marmalade Cream Cheese Danish!
Think of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry as a blank canvas to create just about any dish you can dream up. To me it’s better than a pie crust, because it PUFFS up beautifully due to steam created between the layers while baking, adding that bit of elegance to your dish. It’s insanely easy to use, so there’s nothing to be shy of.
