Mini Spinach-Artichoke Puff Pastries

I'm quite proud of this recipe because I randomly came up with it one day. Truth be told, it was an inspiration from these Spinach Artichoke Swirls that Mr. Sweets and I love (I'll post the recipe one of these days). This is a simple version of the Swirls!


Are you a fan of spinach like Popeye and I are? How about artichoke? My Momma makes the best artichoke that I can't even come close to replicating. I think she should write a guest-blog on here of her artichoke masterpiece!



Puff Pastry is one of life's little treasures. Its sweet taste that crumbles in your mouth...delectable. 

I have no words for this creation...because my mouth is stuffed full of them!


1 roll of puff pastry chilled...I got the buttered kind this time, but I don't recommend getting it. Try to find plain puff pastry
1 cup cooked spinach...more if you want to have softball-sized biceps!
3 artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
Cheddar cheese
 
~ Preheat your oven to 350 F/180 C
~ Cook the spinach in boiling water until it is soft 
~ Drain the spinach and add to a medium-sized bowl
~ Add the artichoke hearts to the spinach and mix until combined
~ Using a circular pastry cutter, cut out as many circles as you want in your rolled out puff pastry
~ Place the circles on top of a greased baking sheet
 
~ Spoon the spinach-artichoke mixture on top of the puff pastry. Try to center it as much as you can
~ Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top! 
~ Bake until the puff pastry is poofed up and golden! It should take about 20 minutes


Prepare to make this dish many times in your life...

Smooches! xoxo
