Bundles of Joy

Bundles of Joy

Bundles of Joy were born because I needed a fast appetizer to take to a party over the July 4th weekend. I was short on time since I took a late afternoon nap after doing product demo at Habersham Winery.

This delicious appetizer using puff pastry recipe was inspired by Pepperidge Farms. My version uses only 4 ingredients and is simple to put together, so you can go ahead and take a nap before your get together.  You’ll awaken refreshed and ready to receive compliments on your dish.

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.
