Christmas Canapes – Perfect for a festive snack, a Christmas party or even using up turkey leftovers! Puff pastry, melting cheese and cranberry sauce.
Do you have a Christmas party or get together? We’ve hosted one in the past, a chance for friends to get together and celebrate before we all get caught in the dash of to do lists in December. This year life is a bit different, but I’m still having a little evening at home with friends.
Some of my best girl pals are coming over for mulled wine and gossip, midweek and relaxed and I’m looking to produce something quick and simple but still looks impressive.
So, oh hello Super Simple Christmas Canapes!
✅ Ready in just 30 minutes.
✅ Hardly any prep or needed.
✅ A great way to use up that leftover turkey.
Let’s hope the children stay in bed and don’t sniff the waft of these nibbles coming from the oven!
How to make these Christmas Canapes:
They really are so simple…HONEST!
Firstly preheat your oven to 220c, take a 12 tin muffin tray and use a pastry brush to grease it with olive oil.
Tips on making these Christmas Canapes:
- If you are time rich then you can make your own puff pastry, but for me, ready made puff pastry is the answer! I like to use fresh puff pastry (from the chiller aisle) but you could also use frozen puff pastry, make sure it is fully defrosted before you use.
- Remove your puff pastry from the fridge around 30 minutes before you intend to use for best results.
- Serve them warm, oozing gooey brie is just the very best.
