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

puff pastry at brunch: 10 sweet and savory recipes to start your morning by Katherine Martinelli

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.

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

  1. I use puff pastry to make my mum’s famous family sausage roll recipe. The puff pastry is just so deliciously tasty and flaky – combining well with the sausage rolls recipe.

  2. I’d love to make those cinnamon rolls shown above with the puff pastry. Looks so yummy! My family would love them.

  4. I’ve never cooked with puff pastry, but I always see so many yummy recipes for it and have been wanting to try it out!

  5. I’ve never tried puff pastry, but it looks really good! I’m going to see if I can find some so I can start experimenting…

  6. Omigosh- I use puff pastry for the quiche I make for my coffee shop 3 times a week but ive really been wanting to make more and the cinnamon rolls would be the perfect recipe!

  7. I’ve never worked with puff pastry but I would love to try! I love to experiment in the kitchen! For my first puffy pastry I go with something sweet like a fruit filled puff pastry! I might try apple brown sugar and cinnamon .

  10. pinned your avocado cream cheese puff pastries. i just *love* the photos from that post Averie. those pastries are so bright, colorful — very photogenic!

  11. i’ve never made puff pastry before but i recently came across a recipe for homemade poptarts using it! strawberry jam inside, powdered sugar drizzle and sprinkles over top……. i’m drooling as i type. must, make, ASAP!

  12. I love cinnamon buns/rolls!! I love cinnamon in baked goods in general but cinnamon roll is a special something :)
    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..

  13. 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! :)

  14. I have never successfully worked with puff pasty. The one time I used it, it never puffed to my utter disappointment!

  15. I’ve NEVER cooked with puff pastry! I think the first thing I’d make would be some sort of brunchy thing. :)

  16. I would like to make cinnamon buns, they just look so good! I also once made a potato lasagna with puff pastry is was really good!

  17. I’ve never used puff pastry. I would love to give some of these recipes a try, especially the avocado, cream cheese, and salsa stuffed pastry.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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! :)
