How to make these Puff Pastry Appetizers?
You will love these bites if you are looking for a last minute party appetizer.
Here is an overview of how you can make it, the printable recipe with all the details is located further below.
Place the puff pastry sheets on a parchment lined baking tray.
Cut the sheets into equal sized squares and separate from each other.
Spread cream cheese over the puff pastry squares and sprinkle bacon over that.
Bake your appetizers golden.
This is a typical party app. They are great for any celebration such as Christmas, New Years', Game Day, Easter, Halloween, or Thanksgiving.
I love to add some onion jam or cranberry jam over mine before I serve them up as little amuse bouche bites.
It tastes so much better with a jam!
Try to serve them warm. To do that just keep them in a warm oven and take them out on serving trays a batch at a time.
That said, I think the little puff pastry squares also make a great breakfast, brunch, or TV snack.
Prepare in Advance and Leftovers
You can make these savory bacon cream cheese apps in advance.
Bake them and keep them in your oven until you are ready to serve them up. Just warm them up a bit before you serve up your puff pastry squares.
You don't need to freeze them. The thawing process would take longer than making them with a store-bought puff pastry sheet.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in your fridge and us up within a few days. Reheat in the oven or microwave.
