Serves 12 | Prep Time | Cook Time 20

Ingredients

1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package frozen puff pastry (1 sheet), thawed
Tomato preserves or favorite fruit preserves* (about 3 tablespoons)
3 2- to 2-1/2-inch diameter rounds goat cheese (3 to 4 oz. each)
1 egg, beaten
Fresh figs or grapes (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Line a baking sheet with foil; grease foil. Set aside.


2. Unfold pastry on a lightly floured surface; roll into a 12-inch square. Cut pastry into four 6-inch squares. Place 1 tablespoon preserves in center of 3 of the pastry squares. Place goat cheese atop preserves. Bring edges of pastry up and over cheese rounds, pleating and pinching edges to cover. Sea; trim excess pastry. Invert and place on prepared baking sheet, smooth side up. Brush pastry with egg. Cut small slits in pastry for steam to escape. Cut remaining pastry square into decorative leaves; place atop brushed pastry and brush with additional egg.


3. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes before serving. If desired, serve with fresh figs. Makes 12 servings.
