Savoury Roasted Tomato & Balsamic Puff Pastry Bites

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 tsp water
  • Fresh tomatoes, sliced*
  • Salt and pepper
  • Balsamic reduction
  • Fresh basil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Roll out puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Use a 3-inch cookie cutter to cut 9 circles out of each sheet of dough. You should have 18 circles.
  3. Baste the tops of each circle with egg mixture.
  4. Lay a few tomato slices on 9 of the dough circles. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and drizzle with balsamic reduction.
  5. Place the remaining nine circles of dough on top of the others, covering the tomatoes. Use a fork to pinch the edges together. (Egg washed sides should be pressed together)
  6. Lay a slice of tomato on top of each circle, and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. Bake 15-18 minutes until puff pastry is puffy and browned. Remove from heat.
  8. Drizzle with balsamic reduction and garnish with fresh basil.
