Monster Cookies in Puff PastryMonster Cookies in Puff PastryWelcome back!  It’s Day 9 of Dancing Deer’s CEO Trish Karter’s 1,500 mile bicycle trek from Atlanta to Boston, which she is doing to raise awareness for family homelessness.  Hopefully you’re following her progress on Dancing Deer’s website and hopefully you’re also following these recipes because I’ll keep giving you a new one every day!

Today’s recipe is the second to use Dancing Deer cookies:

Monster Cookies in Puff Pastry

I love puff pastry.  I love absolutely everything about it: the richness, the butteriness, the calories.  Well, maybe not the calories, but whatever!  If you haven’t had a monster cookie, the Dancing Deer monster cookies are amazing treats stuffed with nuts and raisins.  They were really good.

They were better in a puff pastry covered in caramel.

Monster Cookies in Puff Pastry

To make this recipe go, I used premade puff pastry shells.  I just baked them, cut their tops of, hollowed them out, and filled them with cookie and caramel.

You will need:

  • 1 Package puff pastry shells (containing 8 shells)
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 Package Dancing Deer monster cookies
  • 8 tablespoons caramel sauce
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar

Brush the top of the pastry shells with butter and bake according to their package instructions.  I personally found that my instructions told me to bake them a bit too long, so if the package gives you a range, go for the smaller time.

Once done baking, cut the tops off with a knife and carefully cut out the inner pastry.  Fill the pastry with crumbled monster cookies and caramel.

Put the top back on the pastry.  Mix the rest of the butter with the brown sugar to create a sugar topping and spread on the puff pastry.

After that I highly recommend that you enjoy!

And Now For Some Indigestion

Accoding to the The National Center on Family Homelessness, the incident of separation is much higher in homeless families than in other similiar situations.  Therefore, homelessness is a problem that can have both immediate dire short-term and long-term consequences.
