Almond Puffs

Puff pastry not only can be used for pies or tart but it also can be used for savory dishes and as type of cookies too.You can always used top or filled them with sugar,almonds,cheddar,caramel or jam.

I used my own puff pastry which I made several days ahead and store in the freeze before I use it.If you don't have the time to make your own homemade puff pastry,you can buy it in the supermarket but sure enough the one I made can achieve similar crispiness as well.In this recipe all you need is 1 rectangular section of puff pastry,some good quality Almond Flakes and some coarse sugar for topping.
As you can see the Almond Flakes that I used is not perfectly sliced where you can tell this is not a good quality one.Although the appearance doesn't look quite presentable but it's still taste good.If you are using your own made puff pastry then it's only takes 10-15 minutes to bake.Frozen puff pastry from supermarket takes a bit longer about 20-25minutes but you still need to keep an eye on it from burning because Almond Flakes can burn easily. Almond puffs can look very elegant and pretty and surprisingly easy to make too.
