Blue Cheese Apple Butter Puff and Happy Leap Year!

We have just celebrated a Leap Year Landmark with a party. What fun it is to have a house filled with happy people, yummy treats to share and lovely music in the background. We had such fun! Here is a little treat to serve at a party or alongside your next soup and salad.
Pastor Chuck’s Apple Butter contains all the concentrated goodness of Maine apple flavor and fresh complimentary spices.
Serves 8
2 sheets puff pastry, thawed if using frozen
8 oz crumbled blue cheese
4 Tablespoons apple butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
Unfold puff pastry sheets one each on a parchment or silpat lined sheet pan. Gently press seams together where the pastry had been folded. Brush each sheet with 2 Tablespoons of apple butter. Sprinkle 4 oz of blue cheese on top of the apple butter. Fold the pastry sheets back up the way they had been in the package. Fold one third toward the center, then fold the other side over the top of the folded pastry. You’ll end up with a narrow rectangle for each piece of pastry. Brush each rectangle with the beaten egg. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are puffed and lightly browned.
Remove from the oven and cool 10 minutes. Place on a cutting board and slice each puff carefully with a serrated knife into eight pieces.
