Making desserts that look as good as they taste can be a tall order if you aren’t a professional pastry chef. They say that baking isn’t an art but rather a science. And not everyone wants to wear a lab coat in the kitchen.

With that said, there are some tips and tricks that can turn any oven into what seems like a magic-baking machine. One of those tricks? Using puff pastry dough to cheat a little bit.

There seems to be no end to what you can do with this prepared dough. You can make everything from jalapeño poppers to empanadas to a decadent, chocolatey dessert.
