0718_SummerSpritz10_HeidiGeldhauser_oneuseonly-696x1039

The summer issue of Atlanta Magazine’s HOME had so many¬†fantastic appetizers for throwing your own backyard Italian apperitivo party. We sipped on spritzes and noshed on nibbles like olives. Today, I’m sharing another fabulous recipe from the party: salami puffs.

This easy appetizer pulls together in no time. While I’m not necessarily a football gal, I know many of you are getting ready for tailgating. This would be the perfect addition. Think of it as pigs-in-a-blanket’s chic older sister…but better!

The recipe calls for cream cheese which is always a winner. Fun fact: in Italy, cream cheese is simply called “Philadelphia.”

Salami Puffs
serves 12

You will need:
– 12 slices Genova salami slices cut in half
– 1 sheet puff pastry
– ¬Ĺ cup cream cheese

To prepare:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Thaw the puff pastry, and unroll on a board covered in parchment paper. With
a rolling pin, roll the pastry into a 12-by-12-inch square. Then, spread the cream cheese on top of the puff pastry. Cut the pastry with a sharp knife into 3-by-3-inch squares. Place a salami half on top of each pastry square, then fold corners of the square together over the salami until they meet in the center, forming a small pouch. Place on a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Serve at room temperature.
