Puff Pastry Cookies

Puff Pastry Cookies by virginiasweetpea.com

Many moons ago I attended a cooking class where the chef made her own ice cream and topped it with a puff pastry cookie.  I remember that I liked the cookie better than the ice cream, even though the ice cream was very good.  During a recent snow break from work, I recreated the puff pastry cookie that I fondly remembered. Puff pastry cookies are easy to make and I think make a dish of ice cream especially appealing.

I’ll have to admit that this batch of Puff Pastry Cookies didn’t last long at my house.  Look at that caramelized sugar on the sides of the cookies.  Yum!

For a dinner party, a puff pastry cookie would make an ordinary bowl of ice cream a special treat.

  3. After seeing the picture in your post on FB, I had to rush right over. That has to be one of the cutest cookies I’ve ever seen. I hate to admit it, but I didn’t know you could make a cookie out of puff pastry. Perfect for Easter!

    I can’t make roll out sugar cookies because they all come out looking like a blob. But I think I could do this.

    I’m pinning!

  4. That is such a cute and easy idea! I’m going to have to save this one for my next dinner party dessert. Thanks!!

  11. How cute is that!? I never would’ve dreamed using cookie cutters on puff pastry sheets. Are they the same as phyllo dough? I must make these for the grandkids. Great pictures too! -Bev

    • Sweet Pea says:

      Puff pastry is thicker and richer than phyllo dough. It is just beyond the ice cream across from the cheese at “our” Kroger. They taste really yummy!
