Cookbook Countdown BAKE ~ Puff Pastry Shapes!

 Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown.
If you are raring to go Bake (like me) from your
massive collection of Cake, Pastry and Bread books,
here is your venue to share your baking journey!

  1. So pretty, especially the pinwheel. I always have trouble shaping pastries and breads...I think I need those tips.

  2. My book is gathering dust! Time to bake something from it! Very nice shapes! I need to stock up on puff pastry too or try making some myself!
