Cheddar and Ham Puff Pastry Jack-o’- Lanterns

Kids will have fun helping to assemble these Halloween party appetizers! You can make them ahead, refrigerate on trays and bake just before serving.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Unroll pastry onto lightly floured work surface. Cut into 8 rounds with 4 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. With sharp knife, cut out jack-o’-lantern eyes, nose and mouth from half of the rounds.
  3. Using the same round cutter, cut out 4 rounds each from ham and Cheddar.
  4. Brush tops of solid pastry rounds with mustard; top with ham and cheese rounds. Top with cutout pastry rounds and press edges to seal.
  5. Place rounds on parchment paper–lined baking trays. Whisk egg with 1 tbsp cold water and brush over tops.
  6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and puffed. Let cool on rack for 5 minutes before serving.
Tip:

Add a sprinkling of herbs to the top of the jack-o’- lanterns to create green hair.
