A canapĂ©  is a small, prepared and usually decorative food, held in the fingers and often eaten in one bite. I have a ton of canape style appetizers to share.  This is my first post in preparation for some springtime party fun. 
The canapes pictured above are made from a small crust of puff pastry, fontinella cheese, tomato, avocado and fresh cilantro.  


  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, defrosted and rolled out to about 10 x 12  rectangle
  • 8 ounces of fontinella cheese, grated
  • 1/2 lb. grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • handful of fresh cilantro, chopped 
  • 1 lime
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. After rolling out pastry, cut small circles with a biscuit cutter and fit each circle into a mini muffin pan.  I used the Demarle Mini Muffin Tray.
  3. Bake until lightly golden brown, about 10 minutes. 
  4. Remove from oven and sprinkle each one with cheese.
  5. Return to oven until cheese melts.
  6. Remove to serving platter and top with remaining ingredients.  Finish with a bit of freshly squeezed lime on top of the vegetables.
