Vegetable Puffs

We were hunting for something to munch with our evening tea and we did not have anything interesting.So we decided to make Vegetable Puffs...ok ok MK decided to make it. It was totally done by him.I was searching for puff pastry sheets for about 3 weeks in all the grocery stores I normally shop. But never found it.Finally I found it in Publix and happy that I can make the pie I was planning for a long time. He had an eye on my sheets and used it to make the puffs. hmmm I was so angry but after tasting the puffs I was totally moved and forgave the puff pastry sheet stealer...


The sheets were real good. We used the one from Pepperidge farm. Cost of it was around 4.65$ and it had 2 big sheets.Out of 1 sheet we..sorry..he made 6 puffs. I think it will be great party recipe....You can make any kind of stuffing.We are planning to make chicken or egg puffs soon..

He left the puffs 2 minutes extra in the oven and it had a black tinge. So make sure you take it out when its golden brown. But the taste was so good..
