Puff Pastry Cookies

Many moons ago I attended a cooking class where the chef made her own ice cream and then 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.

    1. 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!

    2. Paula, these are just adorable and what a great idea!! I love how it look on top the ice cream. Love this – thanks for sharing and pinning! Hope you have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend!

      1. Thanks, Ricki Jill! They were fun to make. I’ll bet your girls would enjoy making them and eating them, too!

    3. 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

      1. 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!

      1. Thank you, Sherry! It’s great to have an easy to make cookie that only need two ingredients.
