Cheese Puffs

I am not sure if this is the easiest or laziest appetizer one could ever make. Three ingredients for cheese puffs, puff pastry, cooking spray and grated cheddar cheese. Either way, the recipe yields buttery puff and layers of gooey cheese and bits of harder crispy cheddar on the outside.

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, 1/2 (17.3-ounce) package
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Thaw the pastry sheet at room temperature covered by a clean kitchen cloth, about 30 minutes.

Roll a 1 inch ball of dough with grated cheese. Fold some cheese into the center and the exterior of the puff pastry. Transfer to the prepared muffin tin. Bake until light golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheets until cool enough to handle. Serve either warm or at room temperature.

  1. Wanted to serve these for Easter, but my store doesn’t carry puff pastry sheets. Instead, I bought 2 packages of mini beef franks wrapped in puff pastry, will remove the franks, and use the pastry to make your recipe. A little more work, but hopefully the same tasty results.
