Who doesn’t love puff pastry?
I don’t care if you tell me that you are not a big “sweets” person – They don’t have to be sweet. A savory puff pastry is delicious too. You could probably put an old shoe in puff pastry and it would probably taste good!
I think putting random ingredients together in puff pastry is a perfect “cabinet stew” situation. I just keep a box of those pre-made, perfect-every-time puff pastry sheets in the freezer. You know the one from the “farm.”
Just take it out and look around for stuff to put in.
This one, shaped into a “beggar’s pouch” style is filled with:
Raspberries – just cleaned out the last of the frozen supply bought in-season and on-sale last year at the farmer’s market.
Hazelnuts – small leftover amount from some cookies (Go Bruins!) hanging out in the freezer
Brown sugar – ’cause sweeter is better.
Cornstarch – to make the juices all thick.
Butter – just a tiny bit, just because. (like pie)
Pinch of salt – because sweet always need a bit of salt.
