PostHeaderIcon Entertaining Recipes: Pepper, Pear, Pecan & Gorganzola Puffs

This is an easy to prep and serve recipe using crescent roll dough and a few fresh and pre-prepared ingredients.

  • 2-3 cups chopped pears
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup gorganzola cheese
  • 1/2 pound dates
  • 3 tablespoons apricot jalepeno jam
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 can large crescent rolls
  • Large-grain sea salt
Preheat oven to 350F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a food processor, combine pecans, dates and gorganzola.  Pulse for a rough chop and mix.

In another bowl, combine pears and 2 tablespoons apricot jalepeno jam.  Fold in cheese mixture.

On a flat surface, roll out 1/2 of the crescent roll pastry.  Drop fruit & cheese mixture in 1 tablespoon portions evenly across the dough.  Place the remaining dough across the top and cut into ravioli-like squares.  Pinch edges of each square to seal.  Arrange on baking sheet and score tops of each square to vent.

In a small bowl, mix remaining jam and water to make a wash.  Brush top of each square with apricot wash.  Sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake for 8-10 minutes until pastry is golden brown.

Very often, these people give up before giving the
program a real chance to work. Even if your small business doesn't have some sort of refrigerator (a rarity today) you can choose vegetable and fruit that do not even require refrigeration. Having some company can also make the fitness session more fun.
