Cream Cheese and Smoked Salmon Vol-au-Vents

An appetizer that is prepared quickly, is tasty, special and looks very good on the festive table. Vol-au-vents are light puff pastry pâtés that can be filled with any favorite cream, here with cream cheese and salmon, very, very good.

Ingredients

Puff pastry
500 g
a standard package of puff pastry
Egg
1 piece
Sesame seeds
1 tbsp
Philadelphia cream cheese
300 g
or any other cream cheese with a similar consistency
Smoked salmon
150 g
Lemon
1 piece
use 3-4 tablespoons of lemon juice

Step by step

1

Let the puff pastry thaw. Then find something suitable for cutting circles - I used a smaller glass. To cut the edges of the circles, use a stopper from a water bottle, or any other shape you like.

It is important to have 15 large circles and another 15 large circles from which to cut the edges - see below for what.

2

Place the first large circles on an oven tray, prick well with a fork and grease with egg yolk.

3

Then put the edges of the cut circles over the first ones, grease them well with egg yolk. You can also put a third layer of edges according to the same method, I didn't put them anymore, I made them smaller.

4

Sprinkle the pies with sesame seeds and put in the oven at medium temperature.

5

After 10 minutes, open the oven door and if you notice that the patties have swelled too much, remove them and prick their middle with a fork to make them flatter. Put back in the oven until golden brown.

6

Remove the pâtés on a plate and leave to cool. You can make them the day before, but on the 2nd day the dough will be drier not as fragile as it is fresh.

7

Spread cream cheese, salmon and lemon juice with a blender - then I broke the vertical mixer and used the big one, it was a torment. So I recommend using a more efficient vertical mixer or food processor for the bird.

8

You can put the cream in the pâtés with a teaspoon and decorate with greens. I used the whipped cream spirit to make a beautiful cream shape, and I didn't put the greens on top.

Good appetite!
