We've been waffling up a storm, using a method for stuffing and waffling puff pastry that we developed last week. The basics? Layer ingredients on puff pastry, roll it up jelly roll-style, twist it into a coil, then press it into a heated waffle iron. Let deliciousness ensue.
Here are our six recipes, all in one convenient and quick guide. Consider this the guide to crispy, buttery, delicious awesomeness. Or perhaps the guide to needing to go on a diet.

Pepperoni Pizza Puff Pastry Waffles
We combine store-bought puff pastry dough with pepperoni pizza-themed fillings, and roll it up using the traditional Chinese scallion pancake method as our inspiration before pressing the whole thing into a waffle iron. The result is a buttery, cheesy, crispy, flaky, flavor-packed treat.
Frangipane Puff Pastry Waffles
This simple, insanely crave-worthy dessert is made by filling puff pastry with homemade frangipane (an easy buttery almond paste), then cooking it on a hot waffle iron until crisp, flaky, and utterly delicious.
Mortadella, Garlic, and Caper Puff Pastry Waffles
Kind of like garlic bread on steroids, this quick and easy puff-pastry waffle snack is layered with paper-thin slices of mortadella along with a garlicky sauce flavored with parsley, capers, and olive oil.
Buffalo Chicken Puff Pastry Waffles
Shredded chicken, Frank's RedHot, and blue cheese, all rolled up into puff pastry and cooked on a waffle iron. If you like Buffalo wings, you are guaranteed to like this variation on our puff-pastry waffle series.
Guava Cream Cheese Puff Pastry Waffles
Inspired by the magical South American pastries filled with guava and cream cheese, this quick, easy, and deliciously indulgent dessert waffle is made by rolling spreadable cream cheese and guava paste into puff pastry, then cooking it in a waffle iron until crisp outside and molten within.
Cinnamon Raisin Puff Pastry Waffles
Cinnamon and raisin are a classic combination, and for good reason: They're delicious together. Here, we roll them into a puff-pastry spiral with sugar and cream cheese, then cook it in a waffle iron until crisp and flaky outside, hot and buttery within.
