star puffs

i am addicted to appetizers...i could eat appetizers for dinner every night of the week. i love making appetizers, and i love looking for new recipes to try. i found a new appetizer recipe this week that i thought i would share. it's a very simple appetizer, and as my husband** said after trying it: "it's good, but there's not much to it". and he's right, but sometimes you need an appetizer that is just simple, not alot of bells and whistles. this was one of my first forays into cooking with puff pastry (i've used the shells a million times, but haven't made much with the dough). and after making these puff stars i am eager to try more recipes with puff pastry...because i love easy appetizers! so if you have a favorite puff pastry appetizer recipe...please share!


here is how i made the star puffs (as found on http://www.foodnetwork.com/)
first, gather your ingredients: puff pastry, parmesan cheese, olive oil & pepper


cut shapes out of the puff pastry, place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, brush with olive oil, and then sprinkle with pepper and parmesan.

bake puffs for 15 minutes at 400 degrees. cool & enjoy!

**disclaimer: my husband enjoys appetizers, but he does not share my obsession with them, he prefers a heartier meal...so his opinion is somewhat biased.

Mmm, add a slice of good tomato, a sliver of fresh mozzarella and WOW!
