Puffs using Pastry sheets

 Hi all..welcome back...i jus watched "Unnai pol Oruvan" kamalahasan movie.It was awesome,its a thriller comedy film.I enjoyed it
My family lives on main course meal and sometimes on snack.My hubby and daughter loves snacking around in the evening.I find terrible time to cook for them...I go crazy in deciding what to cook for them...Recently i bought some pastry sheets..And kept in room temperature(thawed) for 2-3 hours.. and made some hot puffs with veg stuffings.
Here is the way...
 Drizzle some(AP) flour and spread the sheet on it.Roll it to thin sheets in the same length

Cut the sheets horizontal


Stuff anything u like and close with rest of the sheet


Wet the sheet with an egg slightly(to get the brown color on top).If u r no-egg person,use milk instead.Keep them in fridge for 10 minutes before it goes to oven(I like this way,pastry puffs more layers than in room temp).Bake them at 250*F at 10 to 15 minutes in a preheated oven


Hot Puffs are ready
