Ham and Cheese Puff Pastry appetizers

I spotted Wewalka Puff Pastry at the grocery store in the refrigerated section and tried it out. I love that you don’t have to plan ahead and thaw it out. Planning is not my strong suit!

There are so many easy recipes you can make with Puff Pastry, like these Peanut Butter S’mores Sweet Rolls.

I contacted Wewalka to let them know just how much I loved their Puff Pastry and I am thrilled to partner with them on this recipe!

They also have the most amazing Pie Dough, Pizza Dough and Flat Bread Dough. Be sure to look for them to make all of your holiday recipes a cinch! Use the Wewalka Store Locator to find products near you.

Wewalka Puff Pastry is so easy to work with and bakes up perfectly every time. We used both the puff pastry and pie crust for our Venison Steak Pot Pie recently and my family just loved it.

Wewalka Puff Pastry comes wrapped in parchment paper, so you don’t even have to use flour and it’s the perfect thickness so you don’t have to roll it out.

My Pumpkin Pecan Pie recipe also features Wewalka Pie Crust. I’m just so impressed with the quality and how easy the crust is to work with and it tastes amazing.

More Easy Appetizers to Try:

Pomegranate Pecan Party Appetizers comes together in five minutes and it’s a gorgeous presentation! Greek Salad Skewers are always a party favorite and so simple to make ahead.

We always serve Easy Deviled Eggs for parties and this Whipped Feta Spread with Lemon, Garlic and Rosemary has a ton of flavor and can be made a day in advance of your dinner.

  1. I know these are meant to be appetizers but we’ll definitely make them into dinner too just to have another excuse to eat them up!

  2. No measurements are given on how to cut the puff pastry sheets? These look so good and just right for tea party food! Please help!
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Carol,
      I cut the puff pastry into 16 squares. If you are using the Pepperidge Farm brand, I think each sheet will make 8 squares. I hope that helps.

      1. Yes I’m using the Pepperidge farms brand. I’ve not done this before so the 8 squares are in inches wide ? By inches long? If it’s 8×8 does this make it a good size puff? I’m looking for a small size for tea party food so I’m trying to figure out what size would be good!
        Thanks for your help just one more time!😊

  3. I am making these for Christmas Eve for the second year in a row. They’re great! I have also frozen them raw, then thawed and baked and they were good. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Lovely recipe. I brought these to a Christmas gathering yesterday, where I received many compliments on them. A few even asked how they were made, so they could do make in the future. My regret is I’m in Canada and the puff pastry that I purchased came in a package of two blocks, each block was 4“ x 4“, I had difficulties rolling it out into a nice square, so I could cut perfect squares. My first block I rolled to thin and got 12 uneven squares, the second block was much better then I was able to get nine 3” x 3” squares. Will definitely make this again. I baked these a short time before I had to leave and when I got to the hostess house, I popped them in the oven to warm them and they held up well.

    1. Hi Bev,
      I am so glad they were a hit for you. Great idea to bake half way and finish them at the party. Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!
