Puff pastry is the royalty of pastries - crisp, flaky, and especially light, it literally rises to any occasion. And although preparing homemade puff pastry is a labor-intensive process, Puff Pastry Perfection shows that a package of frozen puff pastry sheets makes the magnificence of puff pastry accessible to home cooks everywhere.

Oh, the enchanting creations that await! Frozen puff pastry can be used to quickly and easily render classics such as napoleons, cream puffs , strudels, turnovers, palmiers, mille-feuille, and French tarts . It can be twisted into appetizer sticks, cut into tartlet shapes, used as a quick pie or quiche crust , folded over savory appetizer fillings, molded over casserole fillings to create one-step pot pie 'lids,' or rolled and slice into elegant, but oh-so-easy cookies.

The result? How about portobello napoleons, wasabi shrimp puffs , dried cherry and almond baked brie, or spicy cumin cheese straws for starters? For supper considerchile relleno quiche, puff pastry po' boys , pizza bianco with prosciutto, arugula and parmesan or chipotle and cheese beef pot pie. Next, the sweets: miniatures such as ginger-lime sugar twists, southern pecan crisps , fresh mango napoleons, and puff pastry cinnamon rolls , all perfect for teatime or an anytime nibble. And finally the grand desserts: from lemon-blackberry cobbler to chocolate-walnut strudel to caramel apple dumplings , there's a sweet treat for every taste and occasion.
