Tasty appetizers for the festive table


Tasty appetizers for the festive table

When the guests are already on the doorstep, I propose to prepare delicious snacks for the festive table: very tasty, hearty and very simple to prepare. Crisp from puff pastry, fragrant filling from ham - and beckon with smells during baking. A great snack in a hurry: both guests are full and the hostesses are satisfied.


  • sour cream - 50 milliliters;
  • puff pastry, yeast-free (frozen) - 200 grams;
  • dill greens - 50 grams;
  • ham - 100 grams;
  • salt - a pinch;
  • ground black pepper to taste.

Delicious snacks to the festive table. Step by step recipe

  1. To prepare a quick and tasty snack, we need puff yeast-free dough. You can cook it yourself: the recipe and method of preparation can be found on our site “I like to cook.” And you can buy ready-made, frozen.
  2. Dough must be thawed. Sprinkle a little flour, roll into a layer three millimeters thick.
  3. Cut the ham into thin slices. Choose the type of ham that you like: for example, from turkey.
  4. Rolled puff pastry cakes for delicious snacks to the festive table generously greased with sour cream. It is better to choose sour cream with high fat content: and even better - use homemade.
  5. Sour cream needs a little salt and season with black ground pepper.
  6. Rinse dill greens well, dry and chop finely.
  7. Sprinkle a layer of greased dill with sour cream dough and spread thin plates of ham.
  8. Twist the dough with ham in the form of a roll.
  9. Cut puffs with ham into small pieces: two centimeters wide. And spread on a baking sheet, previously covered with parchment.
  10. We send our "snails" from puff pastry to the oven for 20-30 minutes.
  11. The baking temperature is 200 degrees Celsius.
  12. Ready-to-cooked toasted ham puff pastries are quick and tasty snacks.

I offer one more recipe for a wonderful and delicious puff pastry appetizer.

  1. For this we need puff pastry, which also needs to be thawed, rolled into a thin layer, as in the previous recipe - cooking rolls with ham.
  2. Three hundred grams of fatty, and even better homemade sour milk cheese, a little need to knead with a fork. Salt to taste and add a handful of chopped greens of dill and parsley.
  3. Tip. To make such a filling, I use cheese with a sharp, pungent odor: for example, goat cheese.
  4. Mix the filling thoroughly.
  5. The finished rolled dough sheet must be cut into squares: approximately 7 by 7 centimeters.
  6. In the middle of each box you need to put a filling: approximately, one teaspoon.
  7. Wrap the dough with the filling in the form of triangles. Press the edges of the fork with the teeth so that they do not come apart.
  8. Transfer pies from puff pastry onto a baking sheet covered with parchment. Grease with a beaten egg and bake: as well as puffs with ham.

Serving such tasty and quick snacks on the table is better than hot, although they are no less tasty and chilled.

If you have a few long strips of puff pastry left after preparing snacks, you can prepare a delicious and very beautiful dessert.

  • To do this, you need to clean a couple of ripe apples from the core and cut into thin slices. The peel does not need to be cleaned.
  • Then, dip the apple slices in hot syrup, which we prepare from a glass of water and ⅔ glass of sugar: you can add a little citric acid for taste. We boil for a few minutes, then cool and lay on thin strips of dough in a row: you can overlap a little.
  • It is necessary that the edges of the apples go slightly beyond the edges of the strip - these will be the petals of the flower. The thickness of the strip should be no more than 2-3 centimeters. We twist the strips into a small roll: apple petals should be on top.
  • We spread our apple "roses" on a baking sheet and bake until cooked: that is, 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle baked puff pastries with powdered sugar.

Delicious snacks and desserts made of puff pastry will become a real decoration of the table and a pleasant treat for guests. Visit our website “I like to cook”: and you will learn many interesting and delicious recipes for preparing original dishes.
