Recipe from

Gooseberry Patch


1 1/4 cup cooked chicken, diced
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 3-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 cup celery, thinly sliced
1/4 cup green onion, sliced
1 tablespoon pimento, chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 17.3-oz. pkg. frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg
1 tablespoon water


Mix together all ingredients except pastry, egg and water; set aside.

Unfold thawed pastry on a lightly floured surface. Roll each sheet into a 12"x12" square. Cut six, 6"x6" squares, reserving remaining pastry for another use.

Spoon 1/3 cup chicken mixture onto center of each square. Bring 4 corners of pastry to center; twist slightly and press edges to seal, forming a bundle shape. Arrange bundles on an ungreased baking sheet.

Whisk together egg and water; brush over bundles. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 25 minutes, until golden.
