Puff Pastry at Brunch Cookbook Giveaway

Friend and blogger, Katherine Martinelli, recently released her first e-book, Puff Pastry at Brunch

In the book, she shares ten fun recipes, transforming simple dishes into elegant fare, and they all use one common ingredient, puff pastry.

Katherine uses puff pastry to create a savory Breakfast Galette with Scrambled Eggs, Crème Fraîche, and Chives

Sweet and savory Maple-Cheddar Pinwheels

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

and 7 other mouth-watering recipes

My favorite is her recipe for Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese Frosting.

But I have a thing for cinnamon buns

I enjoy working with puff pastry because it’s easy to use, it’s a fast way to create something fabulous, and it’s extremely versatile.

It can be used in so many recipes from cinnamon rolls to savory appetizers like I did in this Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa-Stuffed Puff Pastry

Two lucky readers will win a digital copy of Katherine’s book.

    i love puff pastry! especially spanikopita and italian rustic tarts – they use puff pastry as the pie crust and then fill it with any kind of savory item. it’s delish, to say the least. i’m loving all your giveaways as of late, even if i don’t win! :)

    I’ve used puf pastry but it was so long ago I don’t recall what it was for. I’d probably try a veggie pizza first thing. Maybe some cute appetizers.

    I had some puff pastry in my freezer for quite sometime. I thought I might make some Baklava. I didn’t make it because a lot of things happened in my life that I didn’t bake for a time. I am now interested in trying to do it again and perhaps use it also for a quiche that I make.

    I have made brie cheese with jam (my favorite is mango) wrapped in puff pastry and baked… it’s so good!

    I’ve also spread chocolate and chopped hazelnuts on puff pastry and rolled and baked.

    I would love to experiment more!

    I have worked with puffed pastry and made the Greek dish spanakopita stuffed full with spinach! (Every member of my family has a different way of pronouncing it).

    As this is an international giveaway, I’ll also post it on my blog! :)

    The quiche in the book looks amazing with all the veggies!
    I always wanted to make an apple turnover with puff pastry, I love eating it fresh out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream..
