Easy tuna puffs

I love to have some frozen puff pastry in my freezer.  It makes whipping up a snack really convenient.  These tuna puffs were done and ready to eat in an hour.  Freshly made and crispy, everyone just had to reach out for one.

I had a can of tuna flakes in my pantry so it was a perfect time to make some tuna puffs.  I used two sheets of pastry, cut each into fours, filled them with tuna flakes and sent them to bake.  Really simple and straightforward.  The filling can be sweet or savoury.  Nutella, blueberry, apple, curry chicken are some options that will be on my to-do list.
