I am in love with Puff Pastry. This was one I threw together. I've seen similar appetizers and figured, simple as pie, and it was. Looking for a quick app to bring to any event, this is it. We here at the Grand Canyon had another ladies night, thanks to Lindsey. I think some really enjoyed these. I hope you do too.
The recipe I created uses nuts. I would suggest not omitting them because I did for half of the recipe and they didn't turn out the same. For some reason they stuck to the pan and the puff pastry wasn't cooked as well.
Recipe: Brie and Jam Pastry Puffs
1 1/3 sheets Puff Pastry
16 tsp Jam or choice, I used raspberry
16 small tsp sized slices brie
16 tsp chopped pecans
1 tbsp water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cut 1 1/3 sheets of puff pastry into 16 equal sized squares.
Press squares into mini muffin tin. Lining the muffin holes. Place one tsp of brie, topped by 1 tsp jam, and 1/2 tsp chopped nuts, into each muffin unit.
Fold Puff Pastry over top and pinch together.
Place on middle rack in preheated oven. Cook for approximately 20 min or until tops are golden brown and flaky. Enjoy.
