Everyone has their own unique entertaining style.  Some people choose elegance, fine china and flutes of expensive champagne.  Some people choose takeout and football.  I tend to fall somewhere in between.  I like the food I serve at parties to LOOK elegant and complicated but to be incredibly easy to make!  After my recent experience at the Pepperidge Farm Game Night Party, I have decided that Puff Pastry is definitely my new favorite party food!

Puff Pastry and Easy Party Recipes

At the recent Pepperidge Farm party, we were treated to an amazing array of foods from Stacie at Divine Lifestyle, and her husband.  I was truly amazed at the versatility that the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry offered.  There were both sweet and savory dishes available and I seriously could not decide which ones to try first!

Puff Pastry Recipes

Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry is not just for holiday entertaining.  You can make things like ham and cheese sandwiches or small rolls to top with homemade chicken salad.  Of course, the desserts were probably some of my favorites!  Flaky rolls of  Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry  with Nutella tucked inside were so beautiful, not to mention tasty!   Made with similar ingredients as a regular pie pastry, the dough is folded repeatedly for flaky layers that rise eight times higher. It is incredibly easy to use.  Pepperidge Farm also makes pastry shells that you just stuff with fresh fruit and whipped cream and serve!  How simple is that?

Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry upgrades your party from ordinary to extraordinary.  The delicious, flaky layers give you a wide range of versatility to make delicious appetizers, desserts and main dishes for every occasion. Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry is the perfect blank canvas to help you bring new life your own unique recipes!
Puff Pastry Game Night
We were sent home with some Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry to see how easy it is to use in our own kitchens.  I really love the mild flavor of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry, which makes it so versatile when it comes to the type of flavors you include in your recipe.  I was impressed with how easy it was to use and will definitely be using it for my next party!  These cheddar cheese straws can be modified in terms of the type of cheese and spices you use, but cheddar and rosemary are some of my favorite flavors!

All you need to do for this cheese straws recipe is open up the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry and roll it out just a tad bit.  Spread with an egg wash and your favorite cheese and spices.  Slice into strips and twist up as shown below and bake.  These cheese straws take less than 30 minutes to make from start to finish and make a delicious treat to serve to guests or to just serve your family with dinner!  Try mozzarella cheese and Italian herbs and serve with marina sauce for dipping.  The  possibilities are endless!

When you make these puff pastry cheese straws, make sure you bake them on parchment paper or a Silpat to keep them from sticking.  You will definitely get a bit of cheese falling out that will stick to a cookie sheet that is not covered in something very non stick!
