Puff Pastry Snacks

Think beyond pigs in a blanket: Wrap something new in puff pastry.

Level:
Easy
Directions
  • Unfold thawed frozen puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Cut into pieces just large enough to wrap around your food (see below) with a 1/2-inch overlap. Wrap, moisten the edge with water and pinch to seal.

  • Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, seam-side down. Whisk 1 egg with 2 tablespoons water; brush on the pastry and freeze until firm, about 20 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake until the pastry is puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Ideas:

  • Bacon: Cook until crisp and drain; stack 3 slices.

  • Chocolate bars

  • Dill pickles

  • Dried figs

  • Goat Cheese: Use a thick slice; freeze 2 hours before wrapping.

  • Jalapenos: Seed if desired.

  • Mango chutney

  • Marinated artichoke hearts: Drain and pat dry.

  • Pears: Stack 3 slices.

  • Portobello mushrooms: Remove the stems; scrape out the gills.

  • Prosciutto: Stack 3 slices.

  • Pitted Olives
