Blueberry Vanilla Goat Cheese Pastry Bites are the last of my favorite pastry bites I’m sharing with you all (at least for now!).

It may be too late to make them for Christmas or New Years Eve, but they are PERFECT for Valentine’s Day. So for all you romantics, maybe this can be an early start to planning for your favorite romantic holiday of the year.

Much like the other two Pastry bites, Cranberry Goat Cheese Pastry Bites and Caramelized Onion Feta Pastry Bites (Copycat) these puff pastry bites are as easy and delicious. Yes, they’re also only five ingredients too!

Like the cranberry bites, these are super easy and ready in just minutes.

MY OTHER RECIPES

With the addition of the vanilla extract and blueberry jam it tastes like a mini danish bite! Feel free to swap out your favorite jam flavors. In fact if you have multiple flavors you can use a few different varieties. Then when serving you’ll have a fun assortment.

Blueberry Vanilla Goat Cheese Puff Pastry bites can be appetizers or desserts! Heck you can even serve them for brunch!

More puff pastry bite flavor options:

  • With the current recipe add in some lemon zest as well.
  • Lemon curd or lime curd with some extra zest added after baking.
  • Raspberry instead of Cranberry with a bit of lemon zest
  • Strawberry with orange zest (orange would also pair great with today’s cranberry jelly)
  • Roasted pumpkin chunks with goat cheese and thyme

Some easy tips for these pastry bites:

  • I prefer to let puff pastry thaw in the fridge but if you’re in a hurry open it up on the cutting board and put a very lightly damp towel over it so it doesn’t dry out.
  • Spray your mini muffin tins before adding the pastry.
  • Blueberry jam is a little runnier than other jams, err on the side of caution or it can run onto the pan and burn.
  • Get the lightest brown you can on the tops because the bottoms will be more browned.
  • If you didn’t add enough jam before baking add some more after they’re out of the oven.

Don’t be fooled these puff pastry bites can be an appetizer, a dessert or even a brunch item. They pair well with mimosas or wine, so basically I’ve got you covered from morning until night with one recipe!

Want to freeze these Blueberry Vanilla Goat Cheese Pastry Bites?

Follow the directions up to right before you would put it into the oven. Freeze the bites for 2-3 hours then store in a ziploc bag. When ready to cook, put them into the muffin tins and bake for 20-22 minutes. Do not bake them without the mini muffin tins, the puff pastry will flatten into pancakes making a mess.

Want to make this into a slab? Keep the puff pastry in three large triangles. Score a rectangle shape a half inch from the border and fill with the goat cheese mixture and top with the blueberry jam. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Directions can be found here.

  1. Estoy feliz de haberme suscrito a sus recetas.Prepare la ensalada griega y las “mordeduras de queso de cabra y arandalo” salieron maravillosas!!!

  2. Could you please clarify about cutting the puff pastry? I haven’t worked with it enough to know.  Will this make 90 appetizers out of 1/2 package of it?

    1. So sorry for any confusion. Each Puff pastry sheet originally comes folded into thirds. You’ll want to unfold it and cut it into 30 squares total. If you want to double the recipe, you’ll get 60 appetizers out of one box of puff pastry. Hope this helps.

  3. I am also confused on the pastry sheets…have never opened a box. Is one sheet several layers? So if you unfold the 3 rectangles (of several layers?) and cut half of it into 30 squares? That would be cutting 1/3 and half of the next 1/3? Keeping the other half for a possible double batch? I’m seriously confused I guess.

    1. I just googled Puff pastry and see that there are 2 sheets so you just use one sheet here and you but one entire sheet into 30! Think I’ve finally got it!! ha!
