These little pastries are filled with a cheesy, savory filling.  I’ll tell you right now- they’re addictive!  They don’t require a lot of ingredients and you can eat them warm or at room temp, which is always a plus.  These work just as great for anafternoon picnic as they do for a fancy appetizer at a party or wedding shower.  Read on to see how we do it!

If you’ve never used puff pastry before, it’s found in the freezer section of the grocery store.  It’s usually near the desserts and frozen dough.  Just follow the instructions on the package to defrost.

While that’s  happening, mix up your filling.  I used Chive and Onion flavored cream cheese because all of the flavors are right in the little package!  No need to add any spices, so it’s quick and easy.

Roll out the pastry and then use a pizza cutter to slice into squares.

Place a little spoonful of filling on each square,

Have a little bowl of water nearby and use a wet finger to moisten the edges.  Fold the pastry over to make triangles.   You can use a fork to crimp the edges, or it actually works just fine to seal them shut with your fingers.  Give them a quick brush of egg wash and then pop them in the oven.

That’s where the magic happens and those little pastries puff up tall and flaky.  They’re so buttery and perfect and they will literally call your name out and say “eat me! eat me!”

While that pastry is puffing up to perfection, the insides are warming up and all of that cheese is melting.

They’re amazing warm, but they actually taste great at room temperature as well.  So they’d make a great little snack to make ahead and take on a picnic or to a party.  And you could totally make them larger and pair them with a salad for a fun lunch.
