These little pastries are filled with a cheesy, savory filling.  I’ll tell you right now- they’re addictive!  They don’t require a lot of ingredients and you can eat them warm or at room temp, which is always a plus.  These work just as great for anafternoon picnic as they do for a fancy appetizer at a party or wedding shower.  Read on to see how we do it!

If you’ve never used puff pastry before, it’s found in the freezer section of the grocery store.  It’s usually near the desserts and frozen dough.  Just follow the instructions on the package to defrost.

While that’s  happening, mix up your filling.  I used Chive and Onion flavored cream cheese because all of the flavors are right in the little package!  No need to add any spices, so it’s quick and easy.

Roll out the pastry and then use a pizza cutter to slice into squares.

Place a little spoonful of filling on each square,

Have a little bowl of water nearby and use a wet finger to moisten the edges.  Fold the pastry over to make triangles.   You can use a fork to crimp the edges, or it actually works just fine to seal them shut with your fingers.  Give them a quick brush of egg wash and then pop them in the oven.

That’s where the magic happens and those little pastries puff up tall and flaky.  They’re so buttery and perfect and they will literally call your name out and say “eat me! eat me!”

While that pastry is puffing up to perfection, the insides are warming up and all of that cheese is melting.

They’re amazing warm, but they actually taste great at room temperature as well.  So they’d make a great little snack to make ahead and take on a picnic or to a party.  And you could totally make them larger and pair them with a salad for a fun lunch.

    Chicken and bacon, a perfect combo! I make these chicken salad sandwiches on crossaints…but, not your typical chicken salad. I do chicken, bacon (yum!), ranch dressing and some other seasonings….I love it. I could eat 10 of them in one sitting. It doesn't help me at all that I'm also pregnant and endlessly hungry. My cheeks totally chub out too! Anyway, I've been meaning to post the recipe on my blog…I'll send it over when I put it up. Thanks for this!

    These sound very yummy!!! Going to have to make these, my mouth is watering.
    MMmmm…you could also make chicken pot pie pockets using defrosted peas and carrots instead of the bacon and sundried tomatoes. If they were made a little larger, you could serve them for lunch or dinner with a nice salad as well.

    Katherine says:

    kristenn– I got 32 (two sheets of puff pastry, each cut into 16 squares). We made half for dinner and froze the rest for a Super Bowl party tomorrow. We loved them!

    My husband is not a big fan of sun-dried tomatoes so I just used a can of mushrooms and chopped them up. It was deeeelish! Love the onion and chive cream cheese!!

    Deanna says:

    These look SOOO good!!! I’m going to have to grab the puff pastries next time I’m at the store. When we do recipes with shredded chicken, we learned a trick from a friend of ours – we cook the chicken, then put it in the stand mixer – and turn it on low – and presto – shredded chicken with out all the obnoxious effort!

    Dessie says:

    I’m wanting to try making these for a baby shower. How many does each recipe serve? I would imagine that, since each box of puff pastries come with 2 sheets and each sheet can be divided into 16 squares, you can get 32 pastries out of it. But I just wanted to check. I didn’t know if the filling recipe made enough to fill all 32. Thanks! Sounds super yummy!

    Just made these on the spur of the moment, and replaced the sun dried tomatoes with three desert spoons of red pesto – they were great !
