Crab Puffs

Crab Puffs | The Hungry Housewife

Want to make something delightful for your Mother’s Day brunch???

Well, these little Crab Puffs are pure Puffection™!!!

I am so glad I partnered with Pepperidge Farm®, because now I realize how useful Puff Pastry can be in the kitchen.

I have been sooooooo under utilizing it.

You could have a whole party and use puff pastry in a ka-zillion different ways and no one would catch on that everything was made with the flaky-buttery sheets or cups of gold.

You can do sweet or you could do savory, or both, which is what I did.

Did you miss last weeks recipe?? Key Lime Tarts. The easiest and most impressive dessert recipe on the face of the planet.

This week I went savory to show the versatility.

I wanted to create something that was easy to put together for a party or brunch.

You can make the filling one day in advance and let the flavors meld overnight in the fridge.

    Leslie those look great. I have 3 packages of the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry in my freezer time to start having some fun.

  4. 4

    I would be more than happy to eat all of these if there are any left. We love puff pastry.

  6. 6

  7. 7

    Wow, those look SO delish!!! I want like 27 right now.

  8. 8

    Would it be okay if I ate 50 of these?

  9. 9

    I use the puff pastry cups and this recipe becomes even easier and more user-friendly. I also use canned crab so I can make more because these darn things fly off the plate at the speed of eat-LOL!

    I like working with pasta and noodles so puff should be a breeze – and I think it has to be savory with pastry – just sayin’

  11. 11

    I took the “Puffection” challenge too! Your crab treats look soooo perfect!

  12. 12

    These puffs are so cute! They would be perfect in a party, and I will probably be eating 10 of these. 🙂

    You, my friend, are a lifesaver! My wife sent me to the net to find the perfect crab puff recipe for her get-together this weekend. Imagine my inept horror when the most I ever really do is some golf forums from time-to-time. This looks like exactly what she is looking for. Thank you!
