So Halloween has come and gone and in my book that means it’s time to start getting excited about Christmas! I adore Christmas and lets face it – what’s not to love? You get family and friends time, pressie time and most importantly to me FOOD TIME! But with all those times happening, the one thing I tend to be quite short on is time itself. Enter my best friend when it comes to canapés – store bought puff pastry. I think it’s okay to admit you don’t make your own puff pastry because let’s face it, with the exception of sweaty contestants on the Great British Bake Off, NOBODY makes their own puff pastry.
You can do wonderful things with puff pastry that are super easy and yet still manage to knock the socks off of the people you are feeding. Take these savoury palmiers or seeing that it is almost the silly season, these melty-cheesey puff pastry stars that only need 4 ingredients.
- two sheets of puff pastry
- a camembert round
- a chutney of your choice (I went for an apple and walnut because it felt quite Christmasy, but cranberry or sweet chilli would also work beautifully.)
- and an egg.
Bake until golden brown and delicious – about twenty minutes and then bite into the most amazing melted cheesy bit of gooey goodness. ENJOY!
