  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp. water

  • 1 cup crumbled goat cheese (about 4 ounces)

  • 1/4 cup cranberry chutney

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped toasted walnuts

  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves (optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.  Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square.  Cut into 25 (2 1/4-inch) squares.

  2. Spoon about 2 teaspoons cheese in the center of each pastry square.  Top each with about 1/2 teaspoon chutney and about 1/2 teaspoon walnuts.  Brush 2 opposite pastry corners with the egg mixture.  Fold the pastry corners up over the filling and and press firmly to seal, then fold over to one side, forming an open-ended envelope.  Brush the filled pastries with the egg mixture.  Place the pastries onto 2 baking sheets.

  3. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Sprinkle the pastries with the thyme before serving, if desired.

If any cracks form while you’re working with Puff Pastry, just rub with a little water and press to seal the dough together.

You can brush an egg-wash glaze (1 egg plus 1 tsp. water) over the Puff Pastry to create a rich, golden sheen when baked.

Make sure the edges of your Puff Pastry are cut—a folded edge will not rise and puff.

To seal stuffed Puff Pastries, pinch the edges together or press with the tines of a fork, just as you’d seal a piecrust.

"I made this with a mango chutney since I couldn't find the cranberry chutney for a guild meeting, it went so fast I barely had time to snag one."

"I couldn't find cranberry chutney so i used apricot cranberry chutney. Goat cheese is expensive but worth it. I made these for a party and had so many compliments I'm making them for Thanksgiving."

"My 5 year old daughter helped me to make these. They went in five minutes. We substituted Mango chutney for the cranberry chutney and they did not turn out as pretty as the picture but were delicious."

"Excellent. Everyone loved it. I preferred it with Blue Cheese. Make sure the dough is cold, otherwise it's very hard to work with. You either need to use 1/2 the ingredients or make the squares considerably bigger."
