Apricot-Blue Cheese Angels

Apricot-Blue Cheese Angels

Bake and freeze these bites up to a week in advance. Try a trio of flavors like a fig jam and goat cheese filling, or finely chopped apples tossed with honey and cinnamon.

  • Yield: 25 servings ( Serving Size: 2 )

Ingredients

  • 1 cup(s) boiling water
  • 1 (7oz) package(s) dried apricots, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup(s) chopped walnuts toasted
  • 1 tablespoon(s) honey
  • 2 teaspoon(s) fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
  • 2 ounce(s) crumbled blue cheese (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry dough thawed
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Combine 1 cup boiling water and apricots in a medium bowl, and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain in a colander over a bowl, reserving 2 tablespoons soaking liquid. Place apricots, reserved soaking liquid, walnuts, honey, juice and cinnamon in a food processor; pulse until coarsely ground. Add cheese to processor; pulse 3 times or until blended.

3. Place one sheet pastry dough on a work surface lightly dusted with flour. Gently roll into a 12 1/2" square. Cut dough into 25 square, 2 1/2" each. Top each dough piece with about 1 teaspoon apricot mixture. Working with one dough piece at a time, bring corners up to the center and pinch closed. Place the angels on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat procedure with remaining dough and apricot mixture. Brush angels evenly with egg. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden.
