Parmesan Appetizer Puffs Recipe

Fresh-from-the-oven appetizers are always well-received at parties. The flaky, rich pastry holds a savory olive filling.—Betty Fulks, Onia, Arkansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min. YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup each finely chopped green onions, fresh mushrooms and ripe olives

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in sour cream until a dough forms. Divide dough into fourths. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  • 2. Combine the cheese, onions, mushrooms and olives. On a floured surface, roll one portion of dough into a 12-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Sprinkle a fourth of the cheese mixture over half of the dough; fold dough in half to form a 6-in. square. Cut into 2-in. squares; press edges to seal. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling.
  • 3. Place squares 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 3 dozen.
