TWD - Cream cheese pufflets
This week's unusual Tuesday with Dorie challenge is hosted by Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes, who has chosen Dorie's cottage cheese pufflets.
What are cottage cheese pufflets? They are little triangles of cottage cheese based puff pastry filled with a smidge of jam. "Sweet samosas" is an apt description of these.
The dough used to make these pufflets is very sticky and soft - you don't have long to work with it before it turns into something akin to wallpaper coated with glue. I also found that the pufflets made from re-rolled dough did not hold as nice a shape as the ones made "first go".
I found the pufflets to be rather unusual in flavour - definitely on the cheesy side. They tasted OK, but not a favourite in my household.
To see how everyone else fared with these, check out the TWD blogroll, and visit Jacque's site for the recipe.
