Puff Pastry Cups with Chicken Salad

Puff Pastry Cups with Chicken Salad

Defrost puff pastry according to package directions.  Use a 2-inch cookie cutter to cut 20 circles in the pastry. Use a 1-inch cookie cutter to cut a circle in the middle of TEN of those circles.

Replace all of the rounds that you cut out, then brush the whole puff pastry sheet with a beaten egg (this will help them stick together AND get golden brown!)

Place the whole 2-inch circles on a sheet pan, then top with the remaining circles (the ones with the 1-inch circle in the middle).  Chill for 30 minutes.

Bake at 400°F for 16–20 minutes.  Let cool slightly, then take a paring knife to cut gently around the inside circle. Remove the inside circle to create a hole for filling.

Once cool, fill with your favorite chicken salad, egg salad, ham salad, etc.  For the full recipe, click  "Get the recipe" below!
