I am a huge prosciutto and goat cheese lover. So much so that I always add them to the oddest of ways to recipes so I must have them on hand at all times.
During my run to the supermarket today I wanted to make a new simple recipe using both. That is how these Prosciutto Goat Cheese Puffs were thought up. I tried to find Pillsbury Crescent dough but because we are going through this stay-at-home situation, there was none. I just found some Pillsbury Biscuits and Pizza Dough. I picked the Pizza Dough as I couldn’t imagine how these two ingredients would work in a biscuit.
I made sure though that I flattened the dough as thin as possible before starting to assemble the puffs. The dough was just too think. And when you bake it you will see that if this wasn’t done, they would have been super thick.
- 1 Pillsbury Pizza Dough Crust you can swap with Crescents as well
- 6 thin slices prosciutto some brands are saltier than others
- 4 oz roll herbed goat cheese
- 1 egg for egg wash
- honey to drizzle over finished puffs
- Cut up prosciutto in small pieces. Set aside.
- Slice the goat cheese. It will likely break up and that's totally ok because we will just put bits of it in each square. Set aside.
- Open the pizza/crescents package and lay dough flat on a cutting board or clean counter surface.
- With a pizza roller or tall glass, flatten the dough.
- Cut into squares or as close to that. Cut off excess and make into a square if you have enough. I got 16 pieces out of one pack.
- Add pieces of prosciutto and then goat cheese to each square.
- Fold them purse like. See finished image and video for reference.
- In a small bowl, whisk the egg and brush well over each piece.
- Bake at 415ᴼ degrees for 15 minutes.
- Once done, place on a serving platter and drizzle with desired amount of honey.
