Snowman Pastry Puffs-2

I had puff pastry leftover from my turkey pot pies last week so I decided to try these easy puff pastry appetizers over New Year’s weekend.  They were cute little guys and were yummy right out of the oven, perfect for a warm dip or a bowl of soup.  I used snowman cookies cutters to put them into a festive shape for January but you could use any shape that you want.

  • 1 box puff pastry (found in your freezer section, allow enough time to thaw)
  • Olive oil
  • Pepper
  • Grated parmesan cheese
  1. Cut a sheet of puff pastry with a star-shaped cookie cutter.
  2. Arrange the stars on a parchment-lined baking sheet; brush with olive oil and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese and pepper.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees until puffed and crisp, about 15 minutes.

They turned out cute and I think the cheese melted on some of them to give them little faces.
