Pear Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Bites ~ 2 bite-size golden, flaky puff pastry topped with maple bacon onion jam, sweet caramelized pears and salty, bold blue cheese. A simple, elegant appetizer as festive as the holidays.

Puff pastry may be the best kitchen hack ever ~ prepared, frozen sheets of dough that bake and puff into beautiful, golden flaky pastry. The dough easily transitions from sweet to savory with the help of a few pantry and refrigerator items.

I never seem to have enough time around the holiday season, despite my best planning and intentions. So it’s all about having quick, easy A-Game recipes in my hip pocket. Or in this case, the refrigerator and freezer.
