Similar Topics:


puff pastry sheets, defrosted
5 pieces of prosciutto (or ham), chopped
1/2 large white onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
fresh thyme
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup fontina cheese, grated
1 egg
1 teaspoon water


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, and defrost one sheet of frozen puff pastry dough.
2. Saute chopped onions and garlic until golden. Add fresh thyme and prosciutto and saute for an additional 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
3. Once your dough has defrosted, thin down slightly with a rolling pin, lightly dusting both sides with flour (image 1). Begin cutting 1 1/2-2 inch strips on each side of the rectangular dough using a knife, only cutting 1/3 of the way towards the center (image 2).
4. In the center of the dough that is still intact, add prosciutto mixture and cheese (image 3). To cover the filling, braid the strips of dough one over the other (image 4). Once all strips are overlapping each other, carefully bend the braid into a circular wreath shape (image 5).

5. Create an egg wash by whisking one egg with one teaspoon water, and brush over the entire pastry (image 1).
6. Tighten up any openings in the wreath before placing on a baking sheet, and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the top of the pastry is golden brown (image 2). Let pastry cool, cut and serve.
