Turkey Pesto Appetizer Bites

Turkey Pesto Appetizer Bites

Can you tell we love appetizers around here? I’m almost powerless against a good dip or bite size appetizer. Here’s another simple one we served at the Christmas Cookie Exchange party. It originally caught my eye because it was so festive looking, but I think it would be a great addition to any appetizer tray. Who doesn’t love a turkey and cheese sandwich? What sets these apart from a sandwich is that the base is puff pastry instead of the traditional bread. A welcome change if you ask me!

3. Bake the squares for 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool.

5. Spread a thin layer of basil pesto onto one side of the sandwich. Add a slice of turkey and a slice of cheese.  Top with matching pastry square.
