2 cans (2 oz. each) anchovy fillets in olive oil
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (1/2 of a 17 1/4 oz. package), thawed
1/4 cup minced fresh thyme leaves


1. Remove the anchovy fillets from the oil, reserving the oil. Cut fillets into small pieces. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine the oil with the garlic cloves. Using the back of a fork or a mortar and pestle, mash garlic and oil to make a paste.

2. If necessary, roll thawed pastry sheet into a 10- by 12-inch rectangle. With a pastry brush, spread pastry sheet with the oil-and-garlic paste. Then cut pastry into 120 pieces, each 1 inch square. Top each square with a piece or two of anchovy and a pinch of thyme. Place pastry squares on an ungreased baking sheet.

3. Bake in a 325° oven until the pastry is golden brown and has risen almost an inch, about 25 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
