puff pastry pizzettes

I’m no interior designer.  This has been made painfully obvious to me by my home decorating choices (more accurately called mistakes).  Right now I’m trying to choose a few paint colors and I just can’t.  I can’t.  I need a glass of wine and a treat.  Thankfully, that I can do, and easily, too, with Michel Richard’s Puff Pastry Pizzettes.  These little one bite snacky hors d’oeuvres are meant to use up the scraps from the other week’s Sunny-Side Up Apricot Pastries. Homemade puff pastry (heck, even store-bought– it’s expensive!) is a no-waste situation.  I only made two of the apricot pastries so I really didn’t have a whole lot of scrap to go with here and just got six pizzettes.  Even so, I made two versions with goat cheese– one with tomato and the other with sautéed leeks.  I’m annoyed that I forgot to put a little parsley leaf on top of each tomato one…my picture would have been cuter!  See what I mean?  I fail on the design details.

These were a tasty little snack with glass (or two) of wine.  They were best warm, though.  The room temp one I tried had definitely lost some of its crispiness.

For the recipe, see Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan.  Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  6. “tasty little snack” is the perfect way to refer to these things! Great photo.

  7. Puff Pastry is so good ! It’s really useful too, I made a sticky mushroom and herb tart as one of my first blog posts and I keep making it. I love the fact you can get it defrosted and rolled up in the supermarkets now.



  8. I feel your pain when it comes to home dec – I actually ended up hiring a consultant to come out and tell me what color to use! Best eighty-five bucks spent. 🙂 Your pastries look perfect! And the sautéed leeks sound delish!

  9. These look delish!
