party snacks

Entertaining this season? Looking for a quick super easy appetizer? well my friends, inspired by a pound of puff pastry that had already thawed in my fridge and a pair of rumbling stomachs  I whipped up these super easy treats.

Puff Pastry Squares

1 box puff pastry

1 container cherry tomatoes

4 whole cloves garlic

olive oil, sea salt and pepper

Heat oven 400F line a baking sheet with parchment and spread above on sheet. Roast 30 mins, roughly until cherry tomatoes collapse.

1 potato sliced very thin

sprig rosemary

olive oil

Heat a skillet on medium, add a splash of olive oil and saute potato slices until light golden brown. Sprinkle with salt and rosemary.

1 tub ricotta

wedge parmesan, grated

Heat oven to 400F

Unfold the pastry and cut into either 3 x 3 square for individual serving or 9 x 9 for more of a meal.  Fold over the sides of the pastry by 1/2 inch making a border all the way around.  Spread a thin layer of ricotta cheese over, this is something you need to eyeball.  Sprinkle a generous amount of parmesan, then top with either potatoes or tomatoes mixtures.

Bake 20 mins or until pastry is puffed and golden.

Serve hot or room temperature.

    Ooo, I’ve tried tomatoes and ricotta before but never ricotta and potatoes. That sounds like a lovely combination with the rosemary.

    I think I generously sampled the potato variety at your fantastic wedding reception. My mom will love ’em. Happy Holidays. xoxo Jas.
