I love puff pastry. It is so versatile and simple to use in so many ways. As an Eastern European, puff pastry is one of the staples in my freezer.

Who doesn't love an easy snack or an awesome appetizer? These Ham And Cheese Puff Pastry Pockets are the answer to any party menu dilemmas.

They make a great appetizer if you host a party but we had them before whenever we craved something different.

I use puff pastry to make both savory and sweet pastries, like these Cabbage Pastries, or  Sausage and pumpkin pinwheels, or these Farmer Cheese Pastries.

How To make a Ham And Cheese Puffed Pastry:

You will need just a few ingredients:

-puff pastry sheets or squares, or rounds- whatever you have available

-slices of your favorite ham(it has to be cooked ham)

-shredded cheese(use your favorite)

-an egg (to brush the pastries).

Step 1.

Preheat the oven to 400F/200C.

Step 2.

I had round pastry sheets this time, so it was very easy. I used 12 pieces of dough.

If you buy puff pastry sheets, then cut the puff pastry sheet in equal squares.

Step 3.

Place the sliced ham on one half of the circle(or square). On top of that ham sprinkle some shredded cheese.

Use what you like(I like mozzarella, provolone, cheddar, gruyere, etc.) I like cheese, so any cheese that melts works for me.

Step 4.

Fold the pastry in half to cover the ham and closed it with the help of a fork. You can brush the edges with a little bit of water, so it seals nicely.

Step 5.

Continue in the same way until you finish all pastry.  Place the pastries on a baking tray covered with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Beat an egg and brush each pastry with it.
