Puff Pastry with Apples, Goat Cheese & Pepitas

What do you eat Christmas morning? It seems every family has a mix of sentimental favorites and new recipes reflecting what point they are at in their lives. Growing up we always had fresh grapefruit halves served in my great grandmother’s china and homemade Swedish stollen. My husband’s family popped a tray of Pilsbury cinnamon rolls into their oven every year. This year, I’m planning on tossing these festive puffed pastry bites in the oven as soon as we stumble downstairs. They will taste great with scrambled eggs, fresh fruit salad, and strong coffee.

You can eat these right out of the oven or let them sit while the wrapping paper flies. Dylan downed a few pieces so I think the little ones will enjoy these as much as everybody and I think Santa will appreciate the savory end to a chocolate and cookie filled holiday season.

This delicious recipe is a great excuse to click over and visit Liz at Say Yes to Hoboken for the full recipe. Remember those cute little cakes I shared with her too? Yum.

Happily, you don't need much at all to bake these up - just high quality puff pastry, apples, goat cheese, pepitas, and a few things to make a quick but flavorful brushing oil.  They would also make a great appetizer for a New Years party.

Merry Christmas friends! I am off to roll out the pastry for a Shaker Lemon Tart and laze around my parent's house. All the presents are wrapped and hidden away. Life is good.


  1. I could totally make this vegan. Looks great! Merry Christmas!

  2. You also should have come across this statement lot of times in your life, but some people truly believe it and consume an apple every day to keep themselves healthy.

  3. So yummy, i read this article and it makes butterflies in my stomach. love this article and i also want to share my favorite toaster oven under $200
