Ingredients

1 (17 1/4-ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1 small (1/2 cup) onion, finely chopped

3 cups chopped fresh spinach leaves

1/3 cup chopped sweetened dried cranberries

1/2 to 3/4 cup blue cheese crumbles

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400ºF.

  2. STEP 2

    Place 1 sheet thawed puff pastry onto cutting board. Cut into 16 rounds with 2-inch round cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Refrigerate 15 minutes until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Cut halfway through chilled pastry rounds, using 1-inch round cookie cutter. Refrigerate 15 minutes until firm.

  4. STEP 4

    Repeat with second thawed pastry sheet.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake pastry rounds 8-10 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool 10 minutes. Remove middle pre-cut top and half of soft center with tip of sharp knife.

  6. STEP 6

    Melt butter in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions; continue cooking 2-4 minutes or until crisply tender. Add spinach and dried cranberries. Continue cooking 45-60 seconds or until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat.

  7. STEP 7

    Place about 1 teaspoon spinach mixture into each pastry cup. Top with blue cheese. Continue baking 5 minutes or until cheese is softened. Serve warm.

Tip #1

- For easy clean up, line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Tip #2

- To make ahead, prepare puffs as directed except do not top with blue cheese. Cool completely; place into freezer container. Freeze. When ready to bake, heat oven to 400ºF. Do not thaw puffs. Place puffs onto baking sheet. Top with blue cheese; bake 5-8 minutes or until heated through and cheese is softened.
