Luckily I put the puff pastry out almost an hour before I needed it to thaw. It was fairly workable by that time and cooperated better then it had in the past. This recipe was a cinch to make and it ended up tasting amazing! I'd have to say this was a good experience with puff pastry and I'd even make this recipe again!
