Ingredients

  • 1 package puff pastry sheets

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

  • 4 ounces light cream cheese, softened

  • 2 eggs, divided

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 cup crumbled garlic and herb feta cheese

  • 1 tablespoon cold water

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 375° F.

  2. Thaw folded pastries 15 minutes. Once thawed, unfold sheets to thaw out flat.

  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onions and saute 3 - 5 minutes, or until tender and translucent.

  4. Stir spinach into softened onions. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until water from spinach evaporates and spinach is mostly dry. Transfer spinach mixture to large bowl.

  5. In small bowl, blend cream cheese with one egg, salt and pepper until smooth. Fold cream cheese mixture into spinach mixture to combine. Stir in feta cheese and set aside.

  6. Line baking pans with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

  7. On floured surface, roll one sheet of puff pastry out to 10 by 12 inch rectangle. Cut sheet in half lengthwise, then again widthwise to form four 5 by 6 inch rectangles. Place rectangles on prepared baking sheets.

  8. Place spoonful of filling onto center of each cut pastry. Whisk remaining egg with cold water to create egg wash. Lightly brush egg wash around perimeter edges of each pastry square.
