apricot havarti puffs

Sweet and savory, sweet and salty, sweet and spicy.


Pillowy doughy… sweet.

It really is the most wonderful time of the year.

Those two up there were my taste testers.

The rest magically stayed intact. You need a couple taste testers, right?

You need to eat melty cheese every day now and then.

You all know I love my vegan havarti cheese. Not only is it a deliciously flavored havarti – it is a jalapeno garlic havarti. Such a great creamy savory flavor with a slight spicy kick, and it pairs perfectly with the sweet tart apricot.

These are the easiest thing to fling together 20 minutes before guests are set to arrive – ready to take out of the oven right as they walk in the door.

dairy and egg free, vegan

makes 16 puffs

1 package vegan puff pastry / pastry dough
1/3 cup apricot preserves (about 1 teaspoon each puff)
2-3 ounces vegan havarti cheese 

Roll out pastry sheet, cut into squares (approximately 2-3 inch square). Slice havarti into one inch pieces. Spoon preserves into middle of square, top with havarti, fold all corners of dough into middle, pinching to close. Place in mini tart molds or directly onto parchment lined baking sheet, pinched edges down. Bake in 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. 

Three ingredients, couldn’t be easier or taste more decadent.
