pesto poppers

These pesto poppers are Hall of Fame as far as appetizers go and soooo easy to pop into the oven.  All it takes is a few ingredients.  We enjoyed these with a bowl of hot pasta fazioli soup.  You'll want to throw these together for your next dinner party.

pesto poppers (adapted from three squared chef)
2 sheets puff pastry
fresh mozarella, cut into small squares

Preheat oven to 400.  Roll out the puff pastry and using a 2-inch round biscuit cutter (I used a 3-inch cup) cut out circles.  In the center of each place 1/4 teaspoon pesto and a small piece of mozzarella cheese.
Pull all sides together and attach with two toothpicks per popper.  Place on a cookie sheet and bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from the oven and discard toothpicks.  Serve warm.
