I can’t believe it’s already February!!!!  Everyone always said that when your kids are young, the time flies by so fast and that is SO true!

If you want some Feb & March ideas for your Bunco party, you can check some out here.  Also, I have been getting into the appetizer craze and my friend made one for Superbowl Sunday and it was YUMMY!!

Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa-Stuffed Puff Pastries

Makes approximately 9 puffs, depending on size of squares and how thin dough is rolled

1 large sheet puffed pastry, thawed

1 ripe avocado, halved and mashed (approximately 1 tablespoon of avocado per pastry square)

1/3 cup cream cheese (approximately 1 teaspoon of cream cheese per pastry square)

1/3 cup salsa (approximately 1 teaspoon of salsa per pastry square.)

salt and pepper, sprinkled to taste

1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400F and prepare two baking sheets with either parchment paper or spray them well with cooking spray.

Thaw one large square of puffed pastry for about 10 minutes. Flour your counter top or working surface and roll out the pastry square as thinly as possible.  With a pizza cutter or knife, slice the puffed pastry into approximately 2-inch by 2-inch squares.

On half the squares place a dollop of avocado, then cream cheese, then salsa, season with salt and pepper.  Use the remaining squares as the lids and place one lid over the filling mounds. Seal the pastry by pressing the edges with a fork, taking care to seal the edges well, pressing the fork in repeatedly, so no filling escapes during baking.

In a small bowl, beat an egg with a fork, and apply to each of the pastry packages. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until desired browning and puffing has occurred. Watch them closely after 10 minutes in case your oven is hotter or your brand of puffed pastry cooks faster.

Remove from the oven and serve.  Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and if desired, reheat leftovers in the microwave for approximately 45 seconds before serving.

So good and they were a hit!

I brought my cream cheese and roast beef pinwheels.  🙂

Lots of hugs to you bunco babes!!
