The snow is falling, Christmas music is in the air, and your annual holiday party is just days away. Rather than simply repeating last year’s menu, why not treat your holiday party guests to some festive puff pastry goodies? Pick up some of our gluten-free puff pastry and transform your Christmas spread with these savory holiday puff pastry appetizers.
Puff Pastry Spinach Mushroom Tartlets
These Puff Pastry Spinach Mushroom Tartlets are one of our favorite recipes from the GeeFree kitchen, and they’re ideal for holiday parties. The mix of meaty mushrooms, leafy greens, and savory cheese blend packs a ton of savory flavor into bite-size tartlets. Our recipe is already gluten-free, as it calls for our puff pastry, but we’re willing to bet that none of your party guests will miss the gluten!
Prosciutto Dijon Gruyere Puffs
These Prosciutto Dijon Gruyere Puffs from Joy the Baker add a fantastic flavor profile to your holiday spread. Together, the zesty dijon mustard, sharp gruyere cheese, and distinctive prosciutto combine to form a wonderfully savory “cookie” that will have your party guests lining up for seconds. Note that these palmiers look complicated, but they’re incredibly easy to make.
Spinach Artichoke Puff Pastry Wreath
When you really want to go all out with your holiday party spread, this Spinach Artichoke Puff Pastry Wreath from Yummy Mummy Kitchen is a must. Not only does this gorgeous holiday wreath embody Christmas, but it’s delicious, too. After all, this puff pastry wreath is packed with everyone’s favorite: cheesy spinach artichoke dip!
Puff Pastry Christmas Tree
Why stop with a wreath when you could add an edible Christmas tree to your holiday table, too? This Puff Pastry Christmas Tree from Alison’s Wonderland Recipes is filled with pesto, prosciutto, and mozzarella cheese — and though it may look too pretty to eat, the branches pull apart for easy noshing.
Baked Brie in Puff Pastry
It just isn’t Christmas without a little baked brie, and this Baked Brief in Puff Pastry from Entertaining With Beth is an essential addition to your holiday party spread. While this recipe calls for a variety of sweet additions, including apricot jam and honey, keep in mind that you can add cranberry sauce or other Christmas flavors to make your baked brie even more festive. Don’t forget the holiday-themed puff pastry cutouts, either!
