Tip

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.
