Ham and Cheese Puff Pastries

I don't know about you, but there is nothing more satisfying than eating a warm, flaky pastry, especially when you make it at home. These Ham and Cheese Puff Pastries are phenomenal and only call for 4 main ingredients! Store-bought puff pastry is so easy to work with and the results are always perfection. This ham and cheese filling is delicious and the dijon mustard gives it an extra special flavor.
After you make a batch of these, you'll think that you could easily sell them because they taste that good. So flakey, soft and filled with the most flavorful filling. You've got to try them!

Ham and Cheese Puff Pastries

Makes 8 pastries

1 cup chopped deli ham

1 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese

2 tsp. dijon mustard

2 puff pastry sheets, thawed (I use the Pepperidge Farm brand)

1 egg + 1 Tbsp. water for egg wash, whisked until combined

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

2. Combine ham, cheese and mustard in a medium bowl until ingredients are evenly distributed. Set aside.

3. Roll out 1 sheet of puff pastry on a cutting board until it measures about 12x10”. Using a pizza cutter, cut the pastry into 4 even squares. 

4. Place about 2-3 Tbsp. of ham and cheese mixture on one side of each square leaving at least a 1/2-inch of space from each edge. Brush egg wash on outside edges of each square and fold the dough over to cover the ham mixture.

5. Press 3 edges on each pastry with a fork to seal it. Make two diagonal slits on the top of each pastry with a knife and brush the tops with the egg wash.

6. Place pastries on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart and repeat steps with remaining puff pastry and ham/cheese mixture.

7. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until pastries are golden brown.

8. Let cool about 5 minutes before eating. Serve warm.
