  • 1 Sheet of ready-made puff pastry thawed
  • 2 tablespoon Melted butter or egg wash, 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • Fillings of your choice (optional), chocolate, cheese, fruit preserves, etc.


  • Preparation – Lay out the thawed puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.
  • Shape – Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut the pastry into desired shapes – squares, rectangles, or triangles.
  • Fillings (Optional) – If you’re using fillings, place a small amount in the center of each cut piece and fold the pastry over, sealing the edges by pressing with a fork.
  • Brush – Lightly brush the top of each pastry with melted butter or egg wash. This will give it a golden finish.
  • Air Fryer Setup – Preheat the air fryer to 375°F (190°C). Place a piece of parchment paper at the bottom of the air fryer basket to prevent sticking.
  • Cooking – Place the prepared puff pastries in the air fryer basket, ensuring they don’t overlap. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until they’re golden brown and puffed up.
  • Cooling – Once done, remove the pastries from the air fryer and let them cool on a wire rack for a few minutes.
Chefs Tips
  • Ensure the puff pastry is fully thawed but still cold for best results.
  • Avoid overfilling the pastries to prevent spillage.
  • Rotate or flip the pastries halfway through cooking for even browning.
  • For a sweet finish, sprinkle powdered sugar or drizzle chocolate over the pastries once they’re cooled.
