Tips

  • How long does frozen puff pastry last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep puff pastry frozen at all times.
  • Properly stored, frozen puff pastry will maintain best quality for about 10-12 months in the freezer, although it will usually remain safe to eat after that.
  • Is frozen puff pastry safe to eat after the expiration date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen puff pastry will typically carry a Best By," "Best if Used By," Best Before, or "Best When Used By" date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the puff pastry will remain at peak quality.
  • How long will frozen puff pastry remain safe to eat? Frozen puff pastry that has been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely, as long as it has been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • How to tell if frozen puff pastry is no longer good? If dry spots or discoloration have developed on the frozen puff pastry, freezer burn has begun to set in - this will not make the puff pastry unsafe to eat, but it will harm the texture and taste.
