3-Ingredient Appetizers.

I was brainstorming some new appetizer ideas that were easy to make in advance and came up with a simple formula for a snack that has some variety, without requiring tons of grocery shopping or dirty dishes. I purchased some frozen puff pastry dough, thawed, rolled and cut it into 2″ circles. Then I experimented with a few combinations of filling: herb goat cheese and rosemary sea salt, blue cheese crumbles and a drizzle of organic honey, and my favorite combination, slices of heirloom tomatoes sprinkled with fresh parmesan cheese. All three combinations got some fresh cracked black pepper on top as well before I rolled up the sides to resemble bite-sized -tarts.  After following the baking directions on the puff pasty box (375 degrees for 10-15 minutes), they came out of the oven golden brown. These lasted about 3 minutes from plate to table at a family party I brought them to, which I think means they were pretty good? I’d love to hear what combinations of fillings you might try!

    I love the sound of the heirloom tomato one. Sometimes simple is best! In this case, I think it is. These look delicious!

    Yum! I bet you could do some lovely sweet varieties too, they are almost like mini pies.

    These look great, do you think they could be assembled ahead of time – frozen & then baked on the day???

    @Maggie — you can definitely do that! I froze them and baked them one time, and the Parmesan tomato ones turned out the best that time.

    New Look in 2007Perseus will not appear ‘Perseus’ acquainted to us due to the vivid stellar object now. An insignificant visitor for the inner Solar Program, Comet 17P/Holmes takes just beneath seven years to orbit sunlight after. Hardly worth a refer to in newsprint, Comet 17P/Holmes abruptly grew to become a press megastar in October 2007.
