Pre-packaged puff pastry is one of dinner’s most overlooked techniques. Keep it stocked in your freezer for easy, delicious, and beautiful meals. (You can usually find puff pastry in your grocer’s freezer section near frozen pie crusts and phyllo dough.)

“I tried this recipe and it was a hit. So simple! I put a small dollop of whipped cream on top of the lemon curd and the blackberry on top of that. Include a sprig of mint leave and you have a very pretty presentation.” -- JackiePR
