Spinach Dip Pastry Bites
Recipe type: Appetizer
  • 1 Box of Puff Pastry Sheets (2 total sheets)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, minced
  • 3 oz softened cream cheese
  • ⅓ cup light sour cream
  • ⅓ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ teaspoon Chile Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. When your puff pastry sheets are defrosted slightly, press down on the seams to make sure it is a solid sheet. Then, take a pizza cutter or knife and cut each sheet into 16 squares (or smaller if desired).
  3. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Cook spinach until slightly wilted - about 3 minutes. Then, add garlic, cook and stir for another minute then turn heat off.
  4. Place softened cream cheese, sour cream, cheese, chili powder, black pepper, and spinach combo into a medium bowl. Mix well.
  5. Add some of the dip onto the center of each puff pastry square.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes until they just begin to brown on the edges. Remove and let cool for 3-5 minutes before serving.
