Sweet, tasty and perfectly bite-sized for entertaining, these grape almond puff pastry bites start with flaky puff pastry crust that’s kissed with a sweet almond grape filling. This one is a big hit at dinner parties… or for any old regular Saturday night!

Ingredients
  • 1 package puff pastry, defrosted (2 puff pastry sheets)
  • 1 cup whole raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1 cup Divine Flavor Jellyberry grapes, halved
  • Powdered sugar for dusting, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF (or degree indicated on puff pastry package) and lightly spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Lay puff pastry out across a cutting board. Cut pastry dough into 3 equal sections. Then cut each section into 4 even slices. You should have 12 pieces per puff pastry sheet (so 24 total). I use a pizza slicer to make this easy.
  3. Gently form each pastry by pressing your fingers into the muffin tin and creating a small cavity for the almond filling. Set aside.
  4. Pulse whole almonds with 1/4 cup sugar in a food processor until finely ground. Add flour and salt and pulse to combine.
  5. Beat together butter and remaining 1/4 cup sugar with an electric mixer until completely combined. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, then beat in extracts. With mixer at low speed, mix in almond/flour mixture until just combined.

  6. Spoon filling into each puff pastry and top with about 4 halves of grapes, lightly pressing them in. (You will have extra filling remaining.)

  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until pastry dough is golden. Allow bites to cool for about 5 minutes before biting into one. Trust me - you'll burn your mouth on the filling! Dust with powdered sugar, if desired, and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

*Calories and nutritional info will vary slightly depending on how much filling is used per bite. I did not use all of the filling, so calories for my puff pastry bites would be lower.
