Turkey-Lingonberry Puffs
 
Yield: 18
Ingredients
  • 1 (17.3-ounce) box frozen puff pastry sheets (2 sheets)
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup diced smoked turkey breast
  • ¼ cup stirred lingonberries* or whole cranberry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Garnish: additional fresh thyme leaves
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Let puff pastry sheets thaw slightly but not completely. (Puff pastry will be easier to work with if it is slightly firm.)
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, cream, garlic salt, pepper, and onion powder. Beat at medium speed with a mixer until well blended.
  5. Using a 2¾-inch square cutter, cut 18 squares from puff pastry.
  6. Place approximately ½ teaspoon cream cheese mixture in center of each puff pastry square. Top each with 1 teaspoon turkey and ½ teaspoon lingonberries, and sprinkle with thyme leaves. Fold squares in half diagonally to enclose filling, and crimp edges with the tines of a fork. Place puff triangles 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  7. In a small bowl, combine egg and water, whisking to blend. Brush egg mixture over tops of puffs.
  8. Garnish tops of puffs with a sprinkle of thyme leaves, if desired.
  9. Bake until puffs are golden brown, 13 to 15 minutes.
  10. Serve immediately.
Notes
*Jarred lingonberries, stirred with sugar, can be purchased at Walmart.
