  • 1 pkg. (10 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Shells

  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate pudding

  • 1/2 cup whipped topping

  • 1 tbsp. green colored sugar

  • 2 or 3 colored fruit strips (red, green and/or yellow)

  • 6 Pepperidge Farm® Gingerman Cookies


  1. Prepare the pastry shells according to the package directions.  Use the colored fruit strips to make hats and scarves to "dress" the cookies.  For the eyes, roll bits of the fruit strips into balls.

  2. Spoon the pudding into the pastry shells.  Top with the whipped topping and sprinkle with the green sugar.  Refrigerate until serving time.  Press the decorated cookies into the filled pastry shells.  Serve immediately.

Place Puff Pastry shells on ungreased baking sheets with “top” facing up. Place pastry shells about 2 inches apart on baking sheet.

To ensure that Puff Pastry shells will rise evenly, score the sides horizontally with a small knife.

Unfilled baked Puff Pastry shells may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.

Always bake Puff Pastry shells in a preheated 425°F oven. Do not bake shells in a microwave or a toaster oven.
