Quick and Easy Appetizer…

I saw a recipe similar to this somewhere and thought I would change it up. This is not gluten free nor is it a fat free treat, but the next time you have guests this is something easy to whip up. I decided to make this one my very own. You will need 1 sheet of puff pastry, parmesan cheese, herbs (I used dried thyme and parsley and there is a reason) and a really tasty mustard.

Because I am an early riser, I could allow for the thawing of my puff pastry in the morning on the countertop. If you need a little more time, place the pastry dough in the fridge the night before and it should be ready the next day. While the pastry was thawing on the countertop, first I grated my cheese into a container and placed it back into the fridge. My next step was to mix together mustard and herbs and I used the horseradish mustard that I put together earlier. If you like, you can also sprinkle on some coarse ground black pepper.


Once the puff pastry is thawed, place a small amount of flour on a board and roll out your dough using a rolling pin. Remove any excess flour from the dough. Spread the mustard mixture over the dough. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the mustard. Using your rolling pin or your fingers press the cheese and mustard gently into the dough. Cut your dough into 2 inch squares and pinch two opposite ends together. You can pinch all four corners, only two of the corners, roll into cheese stick or leave flat. Place in the fridge until ready to bake. As you can see, this recipe can be served with several shapes and you can change your mustards, herbs and maybe the cheese too according to your taste. Also, how small or large you would like your squares will make a difference in the cooking time. The recommended baking time is 10-14 minutes in a preheated oven of 400 degrees. I will also recommend using parchment paper when baking this delight.



Mustard mixture spread evenly over dough before adding in the herbs.


Pinch the corners or lay flat, either way makes for a delightful treat and easy to handle.
