4 Cookies You Can Make With a Box of Puff Pastry

Don’t flake: Keep a box or two in the freezer and you’ll always be ready for an impromptu cookie swap.

Orange & Walnut Palmiers

These palmiers are reminiscent of baklava, without the tedious work of layering phyllo dough. The walnut filling is brightened with the floral essence of orange zest, then sweetened with a touch of honey. Folding the puff pastry dough is fun, and, after a quick trip to the freezer, you'll cut into slices and the signature palmier shape magically appears. You'll love watching them puff and take on color in the oven. We prefer these with coffee or tea for breakfast, or serving as an after-dinner treat. Bonus: they transport easily in an airtight container, so you can bring them to all of your holiday gatherings.

Strawberry Dust Meringues

It’s incredible what the combination of sugar and whipped egg whites can become. A shiny and fluffy mixture turns into light-as-a-feather meringues that are crispy on the outside and slightly chewy in the middle. For success every time, be patient as you're streaming in the sugar—the slower you add it, the better the final result. To check for stiff peaks, hold the whisk upright. If the meringue holds up straight and tall (and doesn't droop downwards), you’re there. Once you've mastered the basic recipe, get creative by piping them into different shapes and sizes. One last tip: be sure to be a new, unopened bag of freeze-dried fruit for this recipe. If the bag has already been opened, there's a chance the fruit will be chewy and not crisp.
