Puff Pasty Surprise

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

I love puff pastry appetizers and this is a very tasty treat. These are best when served warm. Make sure to have at least 3 - 4 per person. This is a very versatile recipe, you could easily change the herbs, cheese and sliced meat. Just make sure not to overfill the puff pastry.

This was tasty! I did use gruyere instead of jarlsberg, as my cheesemonger didn't have any jarlsberg. My puff pastry didn't puff, so the sugars from the jelly burnt, but other than that it was a most unusual, good taste. I served it as an appetizer for chicken enchiladas, and that worked well.
