Puff Pastry in a Flash

Puff Pastry in a Flash

While we can't change your hectic schedule, we can give you simpler, yet equally impressive recipes that can be made in much less time with only six ingredients.

The rules to baking with six ingredients or fewer are to work smart, not hard, and with good ingredients. We've used puff pastry, that master of culinary multi-tasking, in our recipes, thus eliminating the need to make your own temperamental pie, cookie, or tart dough. It is easy to use, extremely versatile, and produces consistent results. We've also used store-bought sauces. We understand the irony of using store-bought products in a dessert magazine, but sometimes it is necessary to cut a few corners. When buying store-bought items for desserts, splurge on the best quality items you can find.

The second key to easy baking is using high-quality ingredients. The better your ingredients, the less you have to do to them to make them taste good. For example, a high-quality puff pastry requires little effort to transform it into a delicious crunchy cookie; ripe, fresh fruit doesn't need to be over-dressed with sauces and sweeteners to make it gourmet. Let the most flavorful ingredients do the work for you. All of these recipes are fast and easy,  and can be made a day in advance.  Because they require just six ingredients, you'll be able to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your family and friends, and never have to make that last-minute drive to the bakery again.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
