Goat Cheese Pastry Rounds
Ingredients
  • 1/2 17 - 17 1/2 ounce package  frozen puff pastry (1 sheet), thawed
  •  tomato preserves or favorite fruit preserves* (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 3 2 - 2 1/2 inches  diameter rounds goat cheese (3 to 4 oz. each)
  • 1  egg, beaten
  •  Fresh figs or grapes (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Line a baking sheet with foil; grease foil. Set aside.

2. Unfold pastry on a lightly floured surface; roll into a 12-inch square. Cut pastry into four 6-inch squares. Place 1 tablespoon preserves in center of 3 of the pastry squares. Place goat cheese atop preserves. Bring edges of pastry up and over cheese rounds, pleating and pinching edges to cover. Seal; trim excess pastry. Invert and place on prepared baking sheet, smooth side up. Brush pastry with egg. Cut small slits in pastry for steam to escape. Cut remaining pastry square into decorative leaves; place atop brushed pastry and brush with additional egg.

3. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes before serving. If desired, serve with fresh figs. Makes 12 servings.

From the Test Kitchen*Test Kitchen Tip:
  • For best results, use thick preserves. Thin-bodied preserves will ooze through the pastry upon baking.
