Just bought "puff pastry petites" at Costco & really liked one of the selections....artichokes with garlic & herb cheese. Excellent texture, crispness, & flavor...just that there wasn't enough filling & kept wanting more in every bite. Then I thought why don't I try to make these myself? The filling was tasty, so I looked at the ingredients. Basically brined artichokes mixed with herb & garlic cream cheese and mayo. Do any of you know a recipe such as this? What are brined artichokes? I usually buy the Trader Joe's bottles or some other from Safeway (not Cara Mia, too oily!). Take a bottle of marinated artichokes, blend with boursin or some other brand cheese? What do you suggest? Also, what proportion of mayo to cheese? Any good frozen pastry sheets out there (Costco puffs were "100% butter" & deeelicious)? I always use Pepperidge farm because that's the only one I know.
I am hoping to make this for Thanksgiving.
