I took French cooking classes many years ago and watched a demonstration of a pastry chef making homemade puff pastry.  It was  time consuming & have never attempted the process.  Thank God for Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. I always keep a box in the freezer.  All you have to do is defrost it in the fridge overnight and the next day it’s ready to roll  out.


In the recipe  we filmed, I used fresh dill as a garnish but would definitely add it to the filling next time for more flavor. I also used Colavita extra virgin olive oil, this really well made heavy 12 cup muffin pan that’s made in America, Pam canola oil spray, and a small All-Clad skillet.

ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of Colavita olive oil 
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 large free range organic eggs
  • 2/3 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh dill, finely chopped
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 package of Pepperidge Farm frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 6 ounces of cream cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 8 ounces of leftover baked salmon, torn into pieces

directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a 12 cup standard muffin pan with Pam..  You will also need a 4 inch round biscuit or cookie cutter.
  • In a small small All-Clad skillet over medium heat add the the olive oil.  Add the scallions and saute for about 5 minutes until softened.  add the parsley and remove from heat.
  • Whisk the eggs and heavy cream until combined.  Whisk in the ground pepper and tablespoon of minced fresh dill.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the 2 sheets of pastry to an even thickness.  Cut out rounds with a 4 inch cutter.  You should get 6 rounds from each Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry sheet.  Fit the rounds into the muffin pan pushing them down in the cups with your fingers.
  • Distribute the scallion and parsley evenly between the muffin cups.
