Spinach Puffs are stuffed with a cheesy spinach filling and enclosed in a buttery puff pastry crust. Perfect appetizer or vegetarian meal! I may be going slightly insane right now....

    Yum, these sound great Tessa, and LOL on the autocorrect 🙂 I love spanakopita but it’s true, filo is a giant pain!

    Yummm! These look so delicious!

    I definitely agree with your thoughts on Hurricane Sandy…it’s kind of forced me to put any “problems” in perspective over the past several days. Those of us with food, water, and shelter are doing a heck of a lot better than many people are at the moment.

    These look delicious! Do you think they’d work in mini muffin cups, or would the pastry be too thick in that size cup for the amount of filling you can fit in? My SiL is hosting a girls’ night get-together this weekend and I was planning on contributing some sort of finger food (and these sound almost perfect 🙂 )…

    So I made these mini muffin sized and they were great! (Thanks for the link to the other recipe – I cut the puff pastry the same size as your directions there but then realized I’d need them to be a little bigger if I wanted them to fold over the top so I stretched it out a bit… it worked fine but I’ll know better for next time!)

    Anyway, everyone loved them and I think they were a perfect little party appetizer/snack! Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

    Can I use regular phyllo dough and put it in the muffin tins. Or will it be to crunchy

    I tried this with fresh spinach that had been sautéed and chilled, just as delicious! Love it!

    I made homemade dough and I’m only 12 years old so I think I did good for my first time my whole family loved them!!!!
