Read an Excerpt

Cheese, Herb, and Ham Pastries

1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed

2 to 3 tablespoons Dijon or any other dark coarse-grain mustard

1/4 cup combination chopped fresh herbs such as thyme, parsley, basil, chives, and tarragon

1/2 pound thinly sliced ham (such as Black Forest, prosciutto, or coppa)

1/2 pound sliced Swiss, provolone, or Havarti cheese

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon cream

Lay one of the pastry sheets on a work surface. Spread with mustard, sprinkle on herbs, and then lay ham and cheese slices evenly on pastry, leaving 1/2-inch border on all sides. Top with second sheet of pastry and crimp edges. Make very light cuts on the diagonal about 1 inch apart on the pastry to form a diamond design. Make an egg wash by beating together the egg and cream. Brush pastry with egg wash and bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat for 20 to 25 minutes at 425° F until golden and puffed. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes before cutting into 2-inch squares.

Makes 8 servings (3 each)
