Ingredients

For the Puffs:
  • 1 sheet Puff Pastry, thawed
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Water
  • Avocado Cream Cheese Spread, (see recipe below)
  • 5 ounces Smoked Salmon
For the Avocado Cream Cheese Spread:
  • 1 Avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
For the Toppings:
  • 1 tablespoon Chopped Fresh Dill
  • 1 tablespoon Chopped Fresh Chives
  • 2 tablespoons Capers
  • Coarse Sea Salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor or in a blender, add avocado, cream cheese, lemon juice, garlic, and salt. Process until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Gently roll out puff pastry sheet on a clean, floured surface slightly. Cut the sheet into 9 equal sized squares. Using a knife, score a thin border around the edges of each square. Use a fork to poke all over the center to the pastry.
  4. Place squares on the lined baking sheet.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 1 tsp water. Brush the squares with the egg wash.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes.
  7. Spread avocado cream cheese in the center of each pastry square. Top with a piece of smoked salmon. Sprinkle with chopped dill, chives, capers, and coarse salt.
  8. Serve immediately.
