How to make puff pastry Christmas canapés.

Every year I have to celebrate New Years Eve at home and I always look for new recipes with which to entertain mine.

My maxim is to try as little as possible and leave everything prepared in advance to enjoy all of us. A lot.

This year I will prepare as an appetizer an assortment of puff pastries whose fillings I can make in advance and that, once assembled, will be baked in one blow.

This type of snack is easy to prepare and very tasty. Perfect to surprise in any event you have and that always triumphs. further some of the puff pastry fillings are suitable for vegetarians and those who are not will find them equally delicious.

Of course the combinations are multiple and you can vary the fillings to taste, but these work very well for me. What is left over, which is a lot, serves me food for another time and saves me a lot of time either before or after the occasion. An advantage to consider.

To accompany the puff pastry I'm going to make some very cool white wine bottles, Albariño type, because the combination is perfect for the palate.

Preparation of puff pastry Christmas canapés

Sobrasada, cheese and almond volovanes

  1. We fill each volován with a teaspoon of sobrasada, something that we will do much better if it is slightly warm (we can give it a heat stroke in the microwave).
  2. We introduce a cheese taco in the sobrasada and place the volovanes in a baking tray. Heat at 210º C for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile we roast the rolled almonds in a pan without oil, over medium heat and stirring regularly so that they do not burn.
  4. Remove the volvanos from the oven, garnish with a sheet of roasted almonds and serve immediately.

Sicilian caponata tartlets

  1. We diced the eggplant with its skin and put it to drain on a strainer sprinkled with a teaspoon of salt for 1 hour ... When the time passes we dry with absorbent paper and reserve.
  2. Chop the rest of the vegetables into equal pieces.
  3. Heat a little extra virgin olive oil in a pan and sauté the eggplant for 6-8 minutes. Remove to a source and repeat the operation with each of the peppers individually.
  4. Sauté the onion for five minutes and add the vinegar. We raise the temperature and add the diced tomato.
  5. Sauté a few minutes before adding the sauteed vegetables, chopped olives and capers.
  6. Cook five more minutes and remove. Let cool before using to fill the puff pastry.
  7. With a pasta cutter we cut the puff pastry into 6 cm discs and transfer them to a baking tray covered with vegetable paper or a silicone mat.
  8. We puncture the entire interior with a fork, leaving the edge intact.
  9. Place a teaspoon of caponata in the center and cook in the bottom of the oven, preheated to 210º C, for 10-12 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown.
  10. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.

Mushroom Dumplings

  1. Finely chop the garlic clove, onion and mushrooms. Heat a little extra virgin olive oil in a pan and poach the garlic and onion for 4-5 minutes or until the latter is translucent.
  2. Add the chopped mushrooms, season to taste and sauté over medium heat for 10 minutes.
  3. We remove occasionally so that the heat is distributed evenly.
  4. Remove from heat source and let cool before using to fill the puff pastry.
  5. We cut puff pastry discs with an 8 cm pasta cutter and transfer them to an oven tray covered with vegetable paper or a silicone mat.
  6. We place a teaspoon of filling in the center, we moisten the contour of each disk and fold in the shape of a crescent. Press with your fingers so that the empanadillas are well sealed and do not open in the oven.
  7. Brush each of the empanadillas with beaten egg and cook in the lower part of the oven, preheated to 210º C, for 10-12 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.

Ham and cheese paquetitos

  1. We spread the puff pastry on a smooth surface and cut 14 squares or rectangles of 4 cm.
  2. Cut the slices of ham and cheese into 28 squares a little smaller, 3 cm.
  3. We place two squares of ham and another two of cheese on top of 7 squares of puff pastry, leaving room around to moisten with a little water.
  4. Place the other 7 squares of puff pastry on top and press the edges with your fingers so that they are well sealed and do not open in the oven.
  5. Brush each of the squares with beaten egg and cook in the lower part of the oven, preheated to 210º C, for 10-12 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden.
  6. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.

Tapenade rolls or spirals

  1. We introduce all the ingredients in the glass of a hand blender and crush.
  2. We taste and adjust the seasoning to taste. We reserve in the fridge until the time of use.
  3. We spread the half sheet of puff pastry on a smooth surface and spread, along the widest edge, the tapenade. We leave a 2 cm strip uncovered that we moisten with a little water.
  4. We roll the puff pastry very carefully, starting at the edge with the tapenade and ending at the moistened edge.
  5. With a very sharp knife we ​​cut 1 cm thick pieces and place them on a baking sheet covered with vegetable paper or a silicone mat.
  6. Brush each of the rolls or spirals with beaten egg and cook in the bottom of the oven, preheated to 210º C, for 10-12 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.

Tips for perfect Christmas canapés

  • When working with puff pastry it is essential that the sheet is very cold, as well as the place where we handle it. When heated it softens and deforms easily. We can put it in the freezer for a few minutes to harden in the cold quickly.
  • We can bake all the puff pastry together on the same tray and save time and effort.
  • The volovanes only need a blow of oven, so we take advantage of the residual heat of baking the rest of puff pastry and introduce them in it while we place the others.
  • Fillers can be varied to taste. Ratatouille, sausage, vegetable pate, turkey or roast chicken, blue or goat cheese are some suggestions to work with. They are a good way to take advantage of those leftovers that are around the fridge.
