18 Easy And Inexpensive Desserts You Can Make With Puff Pastry

The store-bought dough of the gods.

1. Three-Ingredient Strawberry Tarts

Just puff pastry + strawberries + sugar. (Add three more simple ingredients — white wine, balsamic, and honey — to make a deceptively fancy glaze.) Get the recipe.

2. Nutella Cream Pastry Puff

Normally I'm against mixing anything with Nutella because it's ~already perfect~. But I'll make an exception for Cool Whip, if only because the creamy combo makes it that much easier to pile spoonfuls into these puffs. Get the recipe.

3. Cinnamon Roll Twists

Total time from package to plate? 20 minutes. Get the recipe.

4. Strawberry Cheesecake Napoleons

5. Three-Ingredient Nutella Croissants

Plain croissants just seem so wrong now. Get the recipe.
