Cheesy puff crackers



A few weeks ago, when I made the mini herb quiches, I had some left-over puff pastry which I recycled. Having puff pastry ready in the freezer is a salvation, you can make many quick recipes such as tarts, cheese twists and pies.  


The problem with this kind of dough, is that once you rolled it and used it, the left-over cuttings lose the layers when made into a ball and re-rolled again for baking. I don't like waste in the kitchen, and probably this is from my days working as a chef in restaurants where nothing goes to waste. It is something fun to do with your kids, and the options, fillings, shapes are endless. Don’t waste it, just have a good time with the kids.
