Easy peasy pastry puffs

Easy peasy pastry puffs


They say that moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do, apart from having a baby (tick, tick, tick!) so before we left Bod Towers for our new home at The Barn I tried to clear as much clutter out of the house as possible to make the move that little bit easier.

In the back of the freezer I found a pack of flaky pastry and as it was still in-date for a few weeks I decided to get my bake-on right there and then and whip up a batch of easy peasy pastry puffs. They’re similar to classic palmiers but, I admit, not quite as pretty! Still, no one seemed to mind when they tasted them *grins* so I’ll definitely be making more of them in our new kitchen.

Easy peasy pastry puffs


 Easy Peasy Pastry Puffs


  • 1 pack ready made flaky pastry
  • Filling – I used two combinations: marmite and grated cheddar cheese plus onion marmalade
  • Beaten egg


1. If frozen defrost the pastry according to the directions in advance – I thawed mine in the fridge overnight. Preheat your oven to 220ºC (200ºC for fan assisted ovens)/Gas Mark 7.

2. Prepare your filling – I used two simple combinations: marmite and grated cheddar cheese for one sheet of pastry and a jar of onion marmalade for the other, but you could use a sweet filling too like Nutella.

Marmite and cheese

3. Roll out a sheet of pastry and brush with egg wash.

4. Spread the marmite and cheese filling over the whole sheet.

Sprinkle on cheese

5. Carefully fold together the two sides of the pastry towards the middle using the backing paper to help you. Brush with egg wash and then fold again until you have a sausage shape.

Apply eggwash

6. Brush the top with the beaten egg and cut into 1 inch / 2 cm slices.

Ready to cut

7. Repeat with the second sheet of pastry if using.

7. Place the puffs on a greased baking tray and cook for 10-15 mins until golden brown and oozing.

Ready to bake

  1. These look superb, and so quick and easy too-perfect. Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays

  2. Oh what a great idea, I am going to have to give these a try, but maybe with a different filling as I am in the hate camp when it comes to marmite!! Hehe

  3. Ooh these look very yummy. Never thought of using Marmite and grated cheese as a filling for pastry puffs and will definitely be giving these a try! :-)

  4. These look great (besides the marmite, I’m a hater, haha). I’m not very good at cookong but I think I could even manage these! x

  5. These look lush! I have some read-to-roll puff pastry in the fridge so may try something similar but with less folding otherwise they’ll be huge puffs!xx #TheList

  6. These look really good. As an American who hasn’t had the opportunity to visit the UK, I had to look up marmite. My daughter who spent a year in Britain has tried to dissuade me from trying this recipe, but I’m going to give it a go. I may compromise and make a third variation too. Not sure what I’ll put in it.

    I just checked my freezer and I have enough pastry to feed a small army, so I better get to using it! Glad to have found you through #PoCoLo.

    Make it a great day!

  9. Ooh they look very tasty, I would never have thought to use cheese and marmite inside but it sounds so good. Nutella though… I couldn’t make them with Nutella because I would have them all eaten before I could share them.

  10. I really fancy giving these a try. My kids love pastry so much they probably don’t even need a filling!

  11. Going to cook these the little chefs, but the cheese ones; marmite is the devil’s work. #TheList

  12. I use a lot of flaky pastry but tend to make open tarts with them (cheese and tomato being a favourite). This is a great alternative, although I can just imagine my other half’s face when he tastes the Marmite! #pocolo

  13. These look lovely and as they have marmite I’m sure my husband will love! Definitely going to give them a try xx #thelist
