Olive and Sundried Tomato Palmiers

If you are in need of a quick appetizer try this one!  There are only four ingredients (okay, 5 if you count the egg wash) but they are packed with flavor! Change up the fillings to suit your taste but remember this is supposed to be a quick and asy recipe so dont make it too complex.

If you are a frequenter of  Trader Joes, be sure to pick up a jar of their Olive Tapenade.  You all know how much I love my olives and therefore try different brands of tapenade often.  This is by far my favorite. 

Olive and Sundried Tomato Palmiers


1 sheet of puff pastry
1/2 jar olive tapenade
Approx 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes packed in oil, sliced
1 cup shredded mozzarella

Egg wash - 1 egg plus 1 tbsp water, beaten


Defrost puff pastry according to package directions.  Roll out pastry into approx a 14 x 11 inch rectangle.  Spread the tapenade over pastry, scatter the sundried tomatoes over the tapenade and then top with shredded mozzarella.  Starting with the short side, fold both sides of the pastry to the center.  Gently press both sides together so they stick.  Brush with egg mixture and slice into 1/2 inch slices.  Place cut slices on baking sheet and brush with egg mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
