Bundles of Joy

Bundles of Joy

Puff pastry appetizer with goat cheese and Unicoi Preserves
Servings Prep Time
24  15 minutes
Cook Time Passive Time
15 minutes 40 minutes to thaw puff pastry
Ingredients
  • 1 sheet Puff Pastry Comes two sheets to a package. Reserve one sheet for future use
  • 1 Egg Whisked with 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup Unicoi Preserves Vineyard Fire or Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • 4 oz. Goat cheese Crumbled
  •  Flour for dusting work surface
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside
  2. Sprinkle work surface with flour. Unfold puff pastry dough and using a rolling pin, roll out to an approx. 12 inch rectangle. If dough starts to come apart at fold lines, simply wet your finger and press lightly to seal.
  3. Cut dough into 24, approx. 2 inch squares. I used a pizza cutter to do this. You don't have to be perfect here, just try and make them similar in size and shape.
    4. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of goat cheese in the center of each square, then top each with about 1/2 teaspoon full of Unicoi Preserves.
    5. Using the egg wash you made, brush the two opposite corners of the pastry lightly, then fold the corners up and together, pressing firmly to seal your Bundles of Joy.
     
    6. Place each finished Bundle on your parchment lined baking sheet. When you've filled them all, brush lightly with egg wash.
    7. Bake in preheated, 400 degree over for approx. 15 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and lightly golden brown.
    8. Cool on wire rack and serve at room temperature.

Apple Cider Pepper Glazed Ham

Apple Cider Pepper Glazed Ham

Easy, delicious and a crowd favorite!
Servings Prep Time
10-12  10 minutes
Ingredients
  • 5-7 lb. Smoked ham, bone in
  • 1 jar Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Open ham packaging and drain all liquid, then pat ham dry with paper towels. Score the skin in a diamond pattern, and place on a shallow roasting pan. We used our broiler pan and rack, it's ideal.
  2. Roast approximately 45 minutes, then, using a basting brush, glaze the ham with Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread. Roast until internal temperature reaches 150 degrees. Keep an eye on it and if the ham starts to get too dark, tent it with aluminum foil and continue to cook until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 150 degrees.
  3. Let ham rest 20-30 minutes. then transfer to a clean cutting board and slice to serve. While the ham is resting is the perfect time to cook a pan of biscuits. We used frozen biscuits and followed the package directions for baking them. Brushing them with melted butter when they are almost done is delicious.
    4. Serve ham with biscuits, Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread, aged cheddar cheese and Habersham Cherokee Rose.
    .
    5. Accept compliments humbly.
