Super Bowl Puff Pastry

Annual Super Bowl shindig at my friend’s place. I’m looking forward to some unwinding time, some eating, some drinking and of course some cheering – GO 49ers!!

For snacks, I am bringing some puff pastry treats.

First up – puff pastry cheesecake with strawberry sauce.

So first, the puff pastry was rolled out thinly and cut into squares.

I thought about using muffin tins, but I was thinking about cleanup after and I decided to use mini tart cups instead. I placed a square of dough in each, and moulded it to the tin. Ready to be filled.

Now to make my cheesecake filling. Mixing, mixing, mixing.

I then dropped some cheesecake batter into the puff pastry and into the oven they went.

Next up, puff pastry with Brie cheese and cranberry sauce.

I love the puff pastry layers and the buttery taste. I am so happy that I was able to use up all the leftover puff pastry dough I had from class. I really enjoyed making these and I hope the little treats go over well tonight. GO 49ers!!!! =)
