This dessert is made by mixing Nutella with whipping cream. You can add Nutella as it is to the pastry puff, but adding some whipped cream to it makes the dessert light and airy.

Puff Pastry Plum and Thyme Galette

This amazing recipe takes less time than a pie. You don’t have to make your dough from scratch. All you need to do is to unwrap a sheet of store-bought pastry dough. Next, take some plums and thyme. Deseed and thaw the plums. Mash them lightly with a fork and put these in a sauce pan. Add some sugar if you want. Open the pastry sheet and align the plums neatly. Sprinkle some more thyme on top. Close the sheet and use egg wash on top. Bake until your puff pastry turns a lovely shade of golden brown.

Simple Cherry Pastry Pies

Cherry pastry pies are an excellent dessert for a barbeque night as these get prepared quickly and taste divine. You can get ready-made cherry sauce and cherry pulp from the store and if you are in short of time, you can even get some ready store-bought pastry sheets. Just put in the cherry pulp inside and bake until nice and golden. Sprinkle some sugar on top for the added crunch.

Puff Pastry Hearts

These puff pastry hearts look absolutely beautiful when displayed on your dinner table. You can serve these with red berries and delicious chocolate ganache. The sweet and crunchy treats are a feast to the eye and as well to the tongue. These are pretty tea-time snacks as well.

Creamy Spanish Apple Tart

Apple tarts are a perfect puff pastry dessert. These are rustic apple pies that simply feel festive. There is a smooth custard filling inside a flaky and tender crust. You can even use pear, quince or stone fruit inside instead of apples.

Banana Tarte Tatin

This dessert was first made in a French hotel in the 19th century. It is the ultimate holiday dessert. A single bite of this dessert contains a whole lot of textures and flavors. The flaky pastry when paired with a soft fruit inside tastes divine. Ensure that the edges of your pastry are crispy and caramelized.
