How To Make Puff Pastry Tarts

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and lightly spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Unroll puff pastry dough and place on top of parchment paper on a countertop. Using any cookie cutter shaper youโ€™d like (about 3 inches) cut out 12-16 pieces. In batches, place cut out pieces of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Let cool to room temperature
