This is inspired by a puff pastry pizza recipe in my 'The Little Guide to Pizza'. I decided to make mine a sweet version and used some Honey Chevre....These are perfect dinner party bites. The puff pastry rises around the centre piece of apple and cheese and one bite and you're in crisp heaven, with clouds of flavour! Plus these can be made ahead....and baked just before the party to woo and wow your guests. They taste great fresh from the oven or warm —Kitchen Butterfly
12 mini bites
sheet puff pastry (12 X 12 cm)
Olive Oil, to brush on
100g (Honey) Chevre
1 sweet apple, peeled and sliced into 1cm thick chunks
In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 200 deg C
Using a cookie/ravioli cutter, cut the pastry into squares or rounds. Place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper
Brush each piece with some olive oil and place a chunk of chevre. Place a slice of apple and drizzle/brush some olive oil over the top. Sprinkle with cayenne, black pepper and some dried sage
Bake in the centre of the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and puffed up. Remove and let cool down a bit (the cheese will be hot, as expected!)
For the first 9 years of my life I hated food and really loved sugar till Wimpy (British Fast Food chain) changed my life! These days, all grown up, I've junked junk food and spend my days and nights on a quest - to find and share the sweet, sweet nectar that's food in The #NewNigerianKitchen!
Dreaming, cooking, eating and writing...about and adoring a strong food community that's big and bold enough to embrace the world's diverse cuisines - I'm passionate about celebrating Nigerian cuisine in its entirety.
Why do I love food so? It is forgiving. Make a recipe. Have it go bad....but wake up tomorrow and you can have another go at succeeding! Only with food!
