Since today is Memorial Day and I'm not going anywhere special, I chose to conquer puff pastry. Puff pastry is a type of labor- and time- demanding pastry, but yields light and flaky cookies, tarts, etc. It can also be easily bought at a grocery store, but the homemade version tastes much better if you have five hours to spare. It's an amazing sense of accomplishment when you taste the finished product.
