Pastry purses

Puff pastries are my all time favourites. They could be mould into any form and shape and the end result is always satisfactory. Its a perfect snack with tea. It could be baked quickly in just 3 steps :)
I baked this pastry for my friend's party and i remember someone unknown to me, who happened to taste this, had got my contact number and had called me. I was totally surprised that some unknown stranger had taken so much efforts to call me and ask for this recipe. And now, I would like to share it with you too......

1. Take the frozen pastry puff and thaw it at room temperature for about 20 min.
2. Cut into square shapes and fit them into a muffin pan, with the pastry touching the bottom and the corners lightly pressed and flattened at the sides.(so that they dont point upwards and get burnt quickly while baking).

3. Bake them at 200 °C for 12 min. (follow the instructions on the pastry pack you are using). They get puffed up beautifully.

You could use anything as a filling. I have used buttercream with a cherry on the top. The other time i had baked this i used whipped cream with nuts sprinkled. You could as well scoop an icecream into it (but serve it immediately).

 This simple party treat for Birthdays, Kids Party, Kitty parties, any get-togethers, goes to the event Party Treats hosted by Sara's Corner started by Meeta
