I recently discovered the ease and magic of puff pastries. This simple recipe took hardly any time and was fun to watch in the oven. This is a perfect appetizer that looks just as great as it tastes!
Goat Cheese and Honey Puff Pastry
1 package puff pastry
6-8 oz. Montchevre goat cheese
1/4 cup honey
4 springs thyme
Follow the package instructions for thawing the puff pastry sheets. Roll out the dough a little to flatten it. Using a 2-inch circle cookie cutter or the rim of a small glass, cut rounds out of the dough.
Transfer the pastry rounds to parchment lined baking sheets (or a well greased pan) and then press your thumb into the center of each round. This is important because if you don't make a deep enough indentation you will lose your goat cheese once the puff pastry "puffs!"
Place 1 teaspoon of goat cheese in the indentation of each round. Bake at 400F until the pastry is flaky and lightly browned. (8-10 minutes)
When the baking sheet comes out of the oven, wait 2 minutes, then drizzle each piece with honey and garnish with a pinch of chopped fresh thyme. Enjoy!
