    Default Cooking puff pastry ??

    OK, as a followup to my question about using brie cheese, I'm going to
    use some puff pastry shells. I have on hand some shells, but I'm not
    exactly sure how to go about baking them.

    Do I put the frozen 'shells' in the oven or do I wait for them to thaw?
    The directions on the Pepperidge Farm box don't mention anything about
    that! I assume they're to be put in the oven in the frozen state, but
    I'm not sure ;/

    Another mention on the box directions is "Do not bake in microwave or
    toaster oven." Since I typically cook for "pour moi," I am not going to
    turn on my range oven -- doesn't make sense for two wee, itty-itty puff
    pastry shells, so I'll use my (largish) toaster oven anywhoo (nyeh!).

    Sky, who's experimenting again

    I cook mine in the toaster oven not thawed. Here's how mine turned out
    baking them in the toaster oven.

    Mmm brie cheese and puff pastry. A match made in heaven.

    Thanks so much, Koko. As always, your photos are things of beauty and
    your website is too! I ended up thawing the two puff pastry shells
    before I baked them. Next time, I won't bother with the thaw Like
    you, I wondered why the heck the instructions on the box said not to use
    a toaster oven - that just doesn't make sense. And, I'm certainly not
    going to use my regular range oven for two little itty-bitty puff pastry
    shells! That's just not practical ;>

    Sky, who'll do more experimenting soon
