Wonderful flavor and a great appearance - Lovely appetizer or as a side dish for a Brunch buffet. I use non stick foil under them instead of spraying the cookie sheet with oil. These can sit for a couple of hours in the fridge and then just pop them in the oven 20 minutes before serving. Chill time of 1 hour or more not included in the prep time. I like to cover them with plastic wrap before putting them in the fridge. This recipe was originally (years ago) from the Overwaitea quarterly magazine.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (397 g) package puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 (250 g) package cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 6 ounces swiss gruyere cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon mixed crushed dry herbs (your choice but I like rosemary & thyme)
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 12 tablespoons water

Directions

  1. Roll out each slab of pastry in a rectangle 10 1/2" x 21" and cut each rectangle into 18 pieces 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" You will end up with 36 pieces from the two slabs.
  2. Whisk together the beaten egg and the cream cheese, add remaining ingredients (except egg yolks) and whisk some more until well blended Place a tbsp of the cheese mixture in the center of each pastry square.
  3. Beat together the egg yolks& water.
  4. Brush all four corners of the square with the egg yolk wash Pull up the corners and squeeze together at the top forming a little package Place packages on a lightly oil sprayed cookie sheet Refrigerate for at least 1 hour Preheat oven to 400F Brush outside of the packages with the remaining egg wash Bake about 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden Serve hot (warm).

I made these last night for a Christmas Party...they were all gone in about 5 minutes. My DH and I split the last one and they were oh so tasty! I will be making these again for a New Years Eve Party and this time I will be sure to have a taste BEFORE serving to guests!! The cheese filling has such a nice blend of flavors. Thanks Bergy, for another winner!!

These were yummy! I made them for a party and everyone gobbled them up. I couldn't get my puff pastry to roll out to 21" and had to wrestle with it a bit (I made these on a really humid day), but overall they were easy to make, and the flavor was delicious. I used a mix of rosemary, thyme, and dried parsley.

YUM! I made these this morning for a party we're attending tonight. These were amazing! I used 1 tsp of fresh rosemary and probably more fresh garlic than was called for. Also subbed muenster for the gruyere and used neufchatel cheese instead of full-fat cream cheese. If I weren't so puff-pastry challenged, I'd post a picture,but they were pretty free-formed. I will practice and maybe someday post one! Thanks for posting, Bergy!
