Ah Dorie … you had me at Puff Pastry! This week’s Dorie recipe was beyond easy, and it was definitely delicious. I love it when I have all the ingredients on hand to make one of these recipes. It doesn’t happen very often, but I do like it! I don’t think it’s possible to mess up the buttery goodness that is puff pastry, and it’s certainly not going to happen with the addition of mustard and poppy seeds!
If you don’t include the thawing time for the pastry, this recipe is about 25 minutes from start to finish. It’s a perfect food for a cocktail party, or for a ladies’ night. I think that I might try these with caramelized onions or mushrooms next time. Dorie makes a suggestion for using tapenade which also sounds tasty. These look all grown up and complicated, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. You should definitely bring these to your next pot-luck.
