Thanksgiving Turkey & Apple Pastry Bites!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner! I’m exited to share this simple and easy appetizer for enjoying around the fire, watching football games, or using up those leftovers! It’s delicious, bite-size, and super easy to make. You’ll just need a few simple, traditional Thanksgiving ingredients and Puff Pastry Sheets to create these mini appetizers! Personalize them to your family’s favorite flavors! AND — Share with me how YOU would use Puff Pastry this Thanksgiving and you could win a trip to the Pepperidge Farm Innovation Center + more! Woohoo! See below…
Start by cutting out small rounds in the thawed Puff Pastry Sheets (mine were made with a small, round fluted ravioli cutter but any cookie cutter or biscuit cutter would work well). Use the round cutter to also slice your thin green apple, cheese, and turkey (see full recipe below).
After the rounds are cut and egg washed, place on a baking sheet (I lined mine with parchment paper) and bake at 400 degrees F. for 5-6 minutes. Remove from oven and cut each puff pastry into two pieces. Fill with green apple, pepperjack or cheddar cheese, turkey, and skewer a dried cranberry on a toothpick!
They’re easy, delish & bite size so perfect for sharing! If you’re headed to a football tailgate the weekend after Thanksgiving, these would be a perfect addition for snacking on during the big games!

Last Month’s Reader Recipe Favorite: WENDY who shared “I would use the puff pastries as little cauldrons. I love to combine sweet with savory, so I would mix some chopped chorizo with a little cream cheese for creaminess and tang. I would them put some sweet jam, like apricot jam. The jam will look like a concoction on the cauldron!“
