How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.  Stir the cheese and salsa in a small bowl.

Step 2

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 15 x 12-inch rectangle. Cut into 20 (3-inch) squares.  Place about 1 tablespoon cheese mixture in the center of each pastry square.  Top each with 1 olive piece, if desired.  Brush the edges of the pastry squares with the egg mixture.  Fold the pastry over the filling to form triangles.  Crimp the edges with a fork to seal.  Place the filled pastries onto baking sheets.  Brush the pastries with the egg mixture and sprinkle with the chili powder.

Step 3

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and let cool on wire racks for 10 minutes.

    Great recipe as is

    Delicious! I see no reason why you cannot use olives and jalapenos. Why just one? Hubby doesn't like jalapenos but loves black olives so that is what I use. There are lots of variations that can be used with this recipe. Try some chopped up bacon Spam with olives for the filling.

    I tweaked it a little

    Great recipe. I liked it and came up with a plan to make 'pizza poppers' (like the store bought ones that are somewhat costly) I used marinara sauce and topped with a pepperoni. Delishious! Great snack for kids or the guys during a game, etc. I've never worked with puffed pastry before...it's so fluffy and versatile. P.S.- For the original recipe, I agree with a recent post to add jalapenos instead of the olive.

    Nacho Cheese Bites

    I checked these at 11 minutes, and already the filling had leaked out of all of the bites. My oven is usually right on for time/temperature, so I would suggest checking this one *early* when cooking. They lost most flavor once the filling was gone.
