- 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

- 2 sheets of puff pastry, delicately thawed while maintaining their cool freshness

- 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)


1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the thawed and drained spinach, softened cream cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.

3. On a lightly floured surface, unfold one sheet of puff pastry. Roll it out slightly to smooth any creases and make it slightly thinner.

4. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the puff pastry sheet into 9 equal squares.

5. Spoon a tablespoon of the spinach and cream cheese mixture onto the center of each puff pastry square.

6. Fold each corner of the pastry square towards the center, creating a small bundle. Pinch the seams together to seal.

7. Repeat steps 3-6 with the second sheet of puff pastry and the remaining filling.

8. Place the sealed spinach puffs onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each puff.

9. Brush the tops of the puffs with the beaten egg wash.

10. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the puffs are golden brown and puffed up.
