Smoky Pecan Puffs
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min.
Have made these twice now. They are perfect for a function where there are lots of desserts and you want an alternative that isn't sweet.
I gave this a 4 star since I modified it somewhat. I didn't have sherry, so I used brandy and I did not use the poppy seeds. I did use the liquid smoke. These were excellent and got raves at a party where there were many young (20's) people. Will definitely make again!
These were a nice complement to the smoked salmon I served for brunch on Christmas day. However, if I make them again I would add more liquid smoke, or better yet, I would chop up some smoked lox and stir them into the cream cheese mixture. But, they were fun and easy to make, and looked fancy on our plates.
Made this at Christmas. It was a hit. They are so addicting! You just pop em in your mouth. Very easy to make. Gonna make em again today for a wine tasting party.
These were very tasty! I used red wine instead of sherry and would say the liquid smoke is a must. They are very time consuming, 81 little tiny puffs take some patience to make. Next time I will try making them bigger
I have actually eaten pastry puffs made by Awynne Thurstenson....years ago. They were absolutely scrumptious. These puffs are spectacular!
