Raspberry Habanero Goat Cheese Puffs

Servings 16

all-purpose flour for dusting
1/2 (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets (1 sheet) thawed
1 egg lightly beaten
1/4 cup sliced almonds divided
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
4 ounces goat cheese
4 ounces cream cheese softened
1/4 cup Pampered Chef Raspberry Habanero Sauce divided

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line Pampered Chef Cookie Sheet with Pampered Chef Parchment Paper. Lightly sprinkle flat side of Pampered Chef Large Grooved Cutting Board with flour. Unfold pastry onto cutting board and roll into a 10 1/2-inch square using Pampered Chef Baker's Roller. Prick pastry with pastry tool; brush with egg using Pampered Chef Chef's Silicone Basting Brush.

2. Using outer tube of Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup, cut out 16 pastry circles. Place circles on Pampered Chef Cookie Sheet; bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer parchment paper and puffs to Pampered Chef Stackable Cooling Rack; cool completely. Gently press centers of puffs using fingertip to make wells.

3. Meanwhile, place almonds into Pampered Chef Small Micro-Cooker. Microwave on HIGH 60-90 seconds or until lightly toasted, stirring every 30 seconds. Set aside 1 tablespoon of the almonds. Finely chop remaining almonds using Pampered Chef Food Chopper. Finely chop rosemary using Pampered Chef Color Coated Chef's Knife. Combine chopped almonds, rosemary, goat cheese and cream cheese in Pampered Chef Classic Batter Bowl; mix well.

4. Attach open star tip to Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator; fill with goat cheese mixture. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the sauce for garnish. Spoon remaining sauce evenly into puffs; pipe filling over sauce. Garnish puffs with reserved sauce and almonds.
