With it being holiday party season, chances are you have have been asked to bring something to a party you've been invited to. Buying something totally pre-made just doesn't seem special enough, yet making something from scratch just seems so time consuming - especially for this time of year when you have gifts to buy and wrap and work to finish up before the actual holiday. The solution? Meet in the middle and bring something semi-homemade!
I originally had planned on making puff pastry for this recipe from scratch. But then I started thinking about the day ahead of me - I had Christmas cards to make, presents to finish crocheting, grocery shopping to do...and not enough time to do all of it! Buying pre-made, frozen puff pastry sheets makes a world of difference in time management! With just a few other ingredients you'll be ready to make THE holiday appetizer people can't stop raving about.
These bites are super savory and perfectly buttery with just a hint of salt. It's almost impossible to eat just one! They are best served warm, so if you have access to an oven wherever you bring them to then pop them in for a couple minutes just to reheat. It's not necessary though, but certainly don't serve them colder than room temperature.
You should definitely treat yourself to one (or two, I won't tell anyone!) fresh out of the oven. Just be careful not to eat them all! Your fellow party-goers will be quite upset. At least get to your destination first then eat as many as you want!
