Simple Avocado Mozzarella Puff Recipe 

I ought to have given these pups the name Sombrero puffs. All I could think about while I was creating them was how much they resembled small hats—that, and were going to be quite tasty after they had done inflating up in the oven.

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado (mashed)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice ((from 1/2 lime))
  • ½ teaspoon pepper (freshly ground, or to taste)
  • 2 sheets puff pastry ((1 package))
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 6 ounce mozzarella cheese (cut into 12 cubes of 1 inch each)
  • ¼ cup salsa

 

Instructions

Turn the oven on to 400°F. Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet.

Combine the mashed avocado, lime juice, and freshly ground pepper in a bowl.

Puff pastry sheets should be rolled out to measure roughly 12 by 16 inches. Cut out 12 circles from each sheet using a 2 inch round cookie cutter. From both sheets, 24 circles should be obtained.

Twelve circles will be used for the top and twelve for the bottom. For the first 12 circles only, dab a little bit of the egg wash onto the edges of each one. Place a dollop of avocado, a slice of mozzarella cheese, and roughly a tsp of salsa on top of each of the 12 circles.

Lay the remaining 12 puff pastry circles, stretching them if necessary to cover the bottom circle entirely, on top of the filling-filled circles. They’ll resemble tiny sombrero hats. Seal each circle’s edge with a fork. After transferring them, brush the baking sheet with egg wash.

Bake until golden, about 12 minutes.

If desired, top with more salsa and serve.

Notes

These small puffs keep well in the refrigerator for up to three days, after which the salsa may begin to break down the puff pastry from the inside out. Cover them tightly with plastic wrap or store them in an airtight container.

These puffs don’t freeze well, and thawing them will ruin the avocado and salsa flavours. Fresh is preferable when serving these.
