Leek and Prosciutto Puff Pastries

Leek and Prosciutto Puff Pastries - 6

In addition to all of the lovely goodies that everyone brought to the Big Summer Potluck, we were also given a few products to sample, including some amazingly creamy goat cheese. There happened to be some left over at the end of the day, so our hostesses generously gave it to us to take home…and even though I had to drive for several hours, I couldn’t pass it up! I made a makeshift refrigerator with some cold soda bottles, and it was totally worth it. When I got home, I baked up these savory puff pastries before I could devour the rest of the cheese on crackers. With store-bought puff pastry on hand, they were easy appetizers! I made these for me and the hubby, but you can easily double the recipe for company.

Thaw the puff pastry, and then cut it 8 squares. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  19. Hi Tracy – I made these Friday night for a party and they were a big hit! I used a full sheet of puff pastry and cut it into smaller pieces. They were all gone by the end of the night! Thanks for the recipe. 🙂
