Black Pepper–Chevre Pastries

Black Pepper-Chèvre Pastries

Don’t fret: Chèvre is just a fancy French word for goat cheese. Bite into one of these flaky puff pastries and experience the smooth texture of goat cheese, a kick of black pepper, and a hint of citrus.

2 teaspoons orange zest
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
9 ounces black-pepper goat cheese, softened
1 (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten

1. Combine orange zest, juice, and goat cheese in a medium bowl.

2. Roll each pastry sheet into a 9-inch square. Cut each sheet into 9 (3-inch) squares.

3. Spoon goat cheese mixture evenly into centers of squares. Brush edges of pastry with water. Fold each square of pastry into a triangle, gently pressing edges to seal. Place triangles on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and seal edges with a fork. Brush pastries with egg yolk.

4. Bake at 400° for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately. Makes 1½ dozen.

Hosting Help: Serve bites that taste delicious warm or at room temperature.
