Puffy Cheese Appetizers
|Frozen patty shells||10 Ounce (1 Package)|
|Egg||1 , lightly beaten|
|Sesame seed||1 Tablespoon|
|Finely chopped onion||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Finely chopped parsley||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Ground allspice||1 Dash|
|Shredded jack cheese||8 Ounce (2 Cups)|
Allow patty shells to thaw just until pliable (about 30 minutes).
On a lightly floured board, arrange 2 rows of 3 shells each so shells all overlap slightly.
Roll and pat into a rectangle about 10 by 15 inches.
Carefully transfer to a 10 by 15-inch shallow-rimmed baking pan; prick bottom with a fork.
Brush egg over surface and sprinkle with sesame seed.
Bake, uncovered, in a 450° oven for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile melt butter in a small pan over medium heat; add onion and cook until limp.
Add parsley, salt, cayenne, and allspice; cook for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
Remove pastry from oven and spoon cheese mixture to within 1/2 inch of edges.
Return to oven and bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted and pastry is well browned (about 5 minutes).
Cut into 2-inch squares and serve hot.
