Hello! It is Christmas Eve and guests are on arrival. The ideal place to welcome them could be a cosy, comfortable corner by the fireplace, where warm, fragrant appetizers, made of puff pastry, wait for them. These appetizers are easy, light and fast to be made. Would you like to try and make them? Start making little disks of puff pastry and place them on a baking tray. You can fill the centre of each disk with some beans, in order to have a cavity to fill with zucchini (which you have already sautéed with garlic, onion, a sprinkle of salt, pepper and chopped parsley, in extra-virgin olive oil and white wine) and little cubes of raclette cheese to grill and melt later on. Place the little disks in the oven for few minutes 180° C/200°C and then out of the oven just for the time you need to fill them with zucchini and raclette. Place the appetizers in the oven again and, as soon as their surface is golden, puffed and crisp and raclette looks melted, they are ready to be served to guests with a glass of white wine by the fireplace. Besides, please won’t forget to bake some puff pastry little stars and fill them with homemade apricot jam. Leave them in a dish by the fireplace for welcoming Santa. He will appreciate your kindness for sure.
Merry Christmas! Buon Natale! Frohe Weihnachten! God Jul!
