  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup fresh corn
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3/4 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded provolone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in corn, garlic powder, parsley, salt and pepper; cook until corn is tender, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Unfold puff pastry sheets. Using a floured 4-in. round cookie cutter, cut 4 circles in each sheet; place on parchment-lined baking sheets. Whisk together egg and water; brush over pastries. Spoon 2 tablespoons corn mixture onto each circle. Top with tomatoes and cheeses.
  3. Bake until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with basil.
