In all the comings and goings of babies and pregnant ladies, and cousins, and just life in general, I've been looking forward to this very easy recipe from the inimitable Dorie Greenspan. It requires almost no forethought or planning, very little prep time, and the results are quite scrumptious. It reminds me, once again, of the importance of always making time for sweet things in life, edible and otherwise....and also to always keep a bit of puff pastry in the freezer.
Money Saving Tips:
It's cheapest to make your own puff pastry, but it's not exactly a time saver. Look for an all butter puff pastry if you can find one; if not buy some Pepperidge Farm in the freezer case. Use whatever fruit you've got on hand; the original recipe called for apples.
Estimated Cost: $3.00
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed (I defrost in micro, on 50 percent power for about 1 min)
raspberries, fresh or frozen
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Spray lightly with no stick spray. Cut circles from the puff pastry with a drinking glass. Place on prepared pan. Cover the middle with a few raspberries, sprinkle with about 1/2 tsp. sugar and put a pea-sized piece butter on top. Bake for about 20 minutes.
