Seasoned Advice is a question and answer site for professional and amateur chefs. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I was on holiday and left my friend in the house. He left a couple of days before I got back, I told him to make sure everything was switched off, unfortunately he turned off the freezer.

In short I had lots of packets of short crusty pastry in there, just trying to use them up. So far I have done beef wellington, jam tarts and a treacle tart (first one, these are easy and SO nice).

I have run out of ideas!!!!

If the pastry is safe to use now (assuming your freezer never rose above refrigerator temperatures), there will be relatively little harm in refreezing it. The main problem with freezing foods is damage from ice crystals, and this will not affect uncooked pastry. –  SAJ14SAJ Jan 12 at 19:36
    
Sorry, but "what to do with X" is off-topic for the site, as each answer is equally valid. You will have to go somewhere else for ideas. –  rumtscho Jan 12 at 19:58
