These cheeky cheese puffs are one of Aars’ favourite snacks. If he could he would have them as his dinner too – he requested them for tea last week when he had a friend over – they had dairy-free cheese quesadilla’s instead – a fairly good compromise!

At Christmas I tend to keep a box of  Jus Roll in the fridge as it’s dairy-free and soya-free and makes baking last minute snacks like these super simple and fast. I am going to be doing a newsletter soon on super speedy snacks and treats for Christmas so if you haven’t already sign up to receive the free2bake newsletter! It’s free and full of yummy recipes – often you get a sneak preview too 🙂

We love these little savoury pastry puff snacks – they are great to make when people drop by unexpectedly, especially at this time of year, when there are sweet-treats a-plenty. They are very more-ish and you can adapt the recipe to make it your own – sometimes we add a sprinkling of cayenne pepper to the cheese if Aars is fancying a bit of a chilli kick.

Last year I took all the ingredients to our extended-family Christmas celebration at my sisters home, along with one of our “safe” baking trays and baking paper. I made these cheeky cheese puffs for everyone to enjoy. The are sooooo easy, sooooo fast and sooooo more-ish everyone scoffed them down!

cheeky vegan cheese puffs

These little cheese puffs are super easy to make, the whole process takes about 15 minutes from fridge to face! Pre-rolled puff pastry is a wonderful, labour saving fridge staple during the holiday season; enabling sweet and savoury treats to be whizzed out at a moments notice. Happily there are dairy-free and soya-free versions available, though I have not yet discovered a gluten-free puff-pastry so I cannot partake! 

Ingredients:

  • Pre-rolled puff pastry (I use Jus Roll as it’s dairy-free and soya-free),
  • olive oil,
  • black pepper, 
  • cheese alternative (we use organic amisa vegana – a dairy-free & soya-free one)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC (fan) & prep a baking tray with baking paper.

  2. Cut a rectangle of pastry (only prepare what you are going to eat) Onto the rectangle of pastry add a sprinkling of cheese alternative, a drizzle of olive oil & a grind of fresh black pepper. (see photo)

  3. Cut into strips about 4cm wide, then fold the strips lengthways down the middle. Pinch the edges together. Chop into cheeky cheese puff sizes.

  4. Pop on the baking tray and into the oven. They take about 10 minutes to cook, when you get them out chomp straight away!

Notes:

I also add a sprinkling of cayenne pepper to these sometimes for a little chilli kick!

Love your ideas, Rachel! Will be making the cheeky cheese puffs on Sunday when we have a brunch with friends. Luckily, no allergies in our home, so will try with feta cheese. 🙂
Have a wonderful Advent and fabulous Christmas!
