Baking Shit // Incredibly Easy & Just as Delicious Spinach Cheese Puffs.
If the question “What’s the one food product that you absolutely love & incorporate in (almost) all your meals?” was asked, then my answer will be, and without much thinking, cheese! I love it! All cheese-y, yes please! Given the previously stated (is this a courtroom or what?), it shouldn’t be strange that the recipes and stuff I cooked (wow that sounds so experienced and, and.. whatnot), almost always have cheese, in whatever “form”. And this is not an exception, obviously.
Angela and I were improvising with this recipe actually, and we were quite surprised when we tried these and realized they kick-ass (immodest and bragging-like, I know, but my imaginary shrink told me I have to be honest, so..). And given how simple these were to make, I think you’re gonna love them just as much as we did, should you, of course, decide to try and make them. For the full recipe and all, continue below.
Spinach Cheese Puffs.
– Frozen Puff Pastry Dough
– 7 oz (200 gr) Cream Cheese (or sour cream as an alternative)
– 1 Cup Baby Spinach (you can add more or less, but this is the amount we used)
– Fresh Onion Leaves (from one onion)
– Sesame Seeds
– 2 Tablespoons Butter
– Rosemary Powder
1. Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C degrees).
2. Let the puff pastry to defrost (mine took around 10 minutes on room temperature), and when it does, get your rolling pin and spread it making somewhat of a square (each side around 12″, or 30 cm).
3. Since I didn’t have a circle mold (why would you need one when you have glasses), I used a glass with 4 inches diameter (10 cm), which gave me 24 circles.
4. Chop the baby spinach and the onion leaves, and mix them with the cream + sesame seeds. Place 1 tablespoon of the mixture on each circle.
5. When you’re done, “close” the circles by wrapping each around the mixture, and then… wait, le’ me just show you a photo, it’ll be much much easier for both you & me.
6. Melt the butter with rosemary powder (as soon as the butter starts melting, you star pouring down the rosemary), and then spread some on top of each puff by using a silicon brush for pastry (or any type of pastry brush). Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top of the puffs.
7. Place on a baking pan (with or without parchment paper) & bake for around 20 minutes.
8. Donezo. Serve or eat all of them immediately and say that they weren’t good at all so you threw them, you threw them all. I’m kidding, share it with yo’ people, sharing is caring!
