We use more puff pastry at this time of year than any other. It’s such a quick way to perk up leftovers. Those of you who like precise measurements should come back tomorrow.
Cranberry, Blue Cheese and Pecan Pockets
- One sheet of puff pastry
- 1/4 cup or so cranberry sauce
- 1/4 cup or so chopped pecans
- 1-2 ounces blue cheese
Defrost puff pastry and roll out into a square about one and a half times the original size. Cut into 16 smaller squares, about 2 inches by 2 inches. In the center of one half put a half teaspoon each of cranberry sauce and blue cheese. Sprinkle with a few pecans. Fold over into a triangle. Press the folded edges with a fork all the way down each side. Arrange triangles on a greased baked sheet or one lined with parchment. Bake at 400 until golden, about 12 minutes.
