Puff Pastry Shells with Creamed Chicken

Oh PJ! Did you take me down memory lane yet again! no meat on Fridays? check yes, I am Catholic too. Fish sticks? check yes (Mrs. Paul’s or Gorton’s??) Macaroni and cheese? check yes (you know you love it; right?) Horn and Hardart?? I have not heard that name in MAAAANY moons!! As always, you made me laugh AND inspired me to try to make puff pastry. After all, I will have the time now as I am retiring from the “9-5 job for someone else” world (as of October 31st) and have an idea in mind for a home based business teaching other people how to (wait for it …) BAKE! You (all of you at KAF) are a constant source of inspiration for me, you encourage me to try things I have never made before and, most important of all, to Bake for Good by sharing my baking output with my friends and members of my local community. Above all else, that principle will be at the forefront of what I teach to others — don’t let the fact that it is only you or only your and your significant other stop you from baking bread or cookies or scones or muffins, etc. There are plenty of people in your community (like first responders, the staff in your doctor/dentist/vet office, your church community) who would very much appreciate your bounty. Baking is happy work – how can you be grumpy when you are baking a batch of your friend’s favorite cookies just because you want to please him/her? BTW, all of my friends each have their favorite cookie and, of course, they are KAF recipes – Almond Clouds! Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies! Chunk Wild Cookies! KAF and the inspiration you provide will help me move forward and make my dream a reality. Thanks!!!
