This elegant appetizer that could easily be served in a 5 star restaurant. I created this recipe to make anyone who serves it look like a rock star from this unique blend of flavors, that combine beautifully. The crunchy puff pastry shell is filled with creamy and flavorful Alloutte cheese spread is really good. However, add in the sweet and slightly warm pepper jelly it is amazing. Now, top with caramelized onions which will transform this appetizer from ordinary to an extraordinary and delectable hors d’oeuvre To see the easy to follow tutorial on how to make this jelly, click HERE
Extraordinary Puff Pastry Appetizer
1 box Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry Shells
Jalapeno & Bell Pepper Jelly
Alouette Garlic & Herbs Spreadable Cheese
Prepare Caramelized onions – recipe HERE
Bake the puff pastry according to directions on the box.
When the pastry shells are cooked, careful not to burn yourself, push in the center to create a hollow place for filling.
Cool the shells COMPLETELY before using. This step, as the caramelized onions, can be prepared in advance. Keep stored for up to 8 hours in a tightly sealed container. Then place about a teaspoon of the Alouette Garlic & Herbs Spreadable Cheese (if you have extra, it is sssooo good on sandwiches or crackers).
Next two teaspoons or so of the caramelized onion goes on; just kinda pile it up on top.Adorning the top is the amazing Jalapeno & Bell Pepper Jelly, about a teaspoon or so. Serve with an hour or so of preparation.Carrie’s recipes, Copyright Carrie Groneman, 2014
