The Fancy Costco Holiday Cookies That Take The Fuss Out Of Puff Pastry
By Brianna Corley
While puff pastries' taste can make the Herald Angels sing, they are far from easy to prepare. However, this year, you don't have to worry about working as diligently as an elf in Santa's workshop on puff pastry dough — you just need to take your sleigh to Costco, as they offer members Christmas cookies that will put your puff pastry troubles to rest.
Be on the lookout for Karen's Bakery Danish Puff Pastries, allegedly made with "96 layers of puff pastry" (per Costco) and a bourbon-based vanilla filling sandwiched between crisp "puff pastry waffles" (via Bisca). One Redditor reported that the Costco treats have a strong vanilla taste, a perfect crispy texture, and the right sweetness.
Imported from Denmark, Karen's Bakery Danish Puff Pastries sell for about $9.23 at Costco, and despite their modest cost, these cookies are made and sold by Bisca, a brand that has served royalty. These cookies are a good choice to leave your guests happy on Christmas Eve while saving you from figuring out what went wrong with your failed homemade puff pastries.
