Kale + Gruyère Puff Pastry Tartlets ~ Last week I help put together not one, but t-w-o parties –– It was a b-u-s-y week to say the least –– whew-wee. It was during this time that I was looking for things to make that could be easily transported, and hopefully served hot because this weather has been so darn coo coo lately. I also needed to get something together for dinner because well, we have to eat too. I have long been a fan of puff pastry and pretty anything that’s touched it along the way. Don’t be intimidated or afraid to work with this ultra flaky pastry dough –– just be sure to thaw it out first and keep it cool until ready to use. Throw it on a floured surface, top with fresh chopped kale greens twisted in with some creamy Gruyère cheese then bake it up, pat yourself on the back, and enjoy your awesomeness while chomping on these tasty morsels.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place garlic, onion, and butter into a large pan over medium heat. Stir and cook until butter is melted. Once butter is melted whisk in flour until well incorporated then slowly add in milk while continuing to whisk together. Next add in the gruyere cheese and continue to stir together for another 1-2 minutes or until cheese is almost completely melted. Remove from the heat, add in the kale, and stir well.
  2. Lay out puff pastry and cut into 12 equal pieces then place each piece onto the prepared cookie sheet leaving space between each one. Using a fork poke a few holes in the center of each piece. Then place a heaping Tablespoon or two into the center of each pastry piece until the mixture evenly divided onto each piece. Then using wet fingers, pinch and fold up all of the sides to create and open pocket for each portion. Once all of the sides are pinched up place into the oven for 25-30 minutes of until pastry puffs up on the sides and is golden brown in color. Once golden in color, remove from the oven and serve.
