Raspberry Macarons

Well, I finally did it. I broke down and made macarons. They have only been on my “to-do” list for more than ten years, ever since I visited Ladurée {Maison de Macarons in Paris}. These natural macarons with pink raspberry buttercream filling taste deliciously like raspberries and are the perfect bite-sized melt-in-your-mouth raspberry almond treat for Valentine’s Day or any other day.

Palmiers

You might recall that not too long ago I posted about the Pepperidge Farm “Puffection” Holiday Entertaining Challenge. Now for the second part of the challenge: my own “Puffection” creation using Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. Golden, caramelized sugar coats these puff pastry palmiers. Enjoy them plain, with cinnamon and sugar, or dipped in chocolate for a special holiday treat.

When Pepperidge Farm contacted me about the “Puffection” Holiday Entertaining challenge I was intrigued and gladly accepted. The first part of the challenge involved cooking an existing Pepperidge Farm recipe. I chose these individual Chocolate Fondue Cups because they are festive and perfect for holiday (or anytime) entertaining.

Ham & Cheese Croissants

In this savory croissant, the ham and cheese are baked inside the buttery pastry dough to make a warm, panini-style sandwich that is great for a main meal or as the side to a soup or salad.

Nutella Croissants

My inspiration for this chocolatey version of the croissant came from the popular French pastry, pain au chocolat, which is essentially a chocolate-filled croissant in the shape of a rectangle instead of a crescent. En lieu of plain chocolate I decided to try Nutella which turns out to be a popular croissant filling in Germany.

Almond Crescents

These flaky, buttery pastries in the shape of a crescent are essentially croissants. I like to make an assortment of flavors but these almond crescents oozing with melt-in-your-mouth almond filling are my favorite.

Quick Croissants

Croissants are a flaky, buttery pastry in the shape of a crescent. They are traditionally made with a yeast dough that is layered and rolled with butter (a process called laminating) but this recipe simplifies the process. I like to make an assortment of croissants, leaving some plain to be served with butter and jam or used as sandwich bread, and filling the rest with sweet and savory ingredients.
