Some people love sweets. They crave cookies every afternoon and put ice cream in their coffee, they eat dessert for breakfast and use the candles on their birthday cake to wish for more anytime-cake. But not me.

Don't get me wrong, I love pie and treats just as much as the next person. But given the choice, I'd choose a salty, melty, cheesy pastry over a chocolate one any day of the week. I know I can't be alone in this, so here are 14 savory pastry recipes to make for everyone you know who prefers to keep things salty.
