Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Lay the puff pastry pieces on the prepared baking sheet, spaced apart.
  3. Top three of the rectangles with cheese, ham, and olives. Top each with the remaining puff pastry pieces and crimp the edges together with the tines of a fork. Brush the pockets with egg wash.
  4. Bake the pockets until golden and crisp, 20-25 minutes. Let cool slightly as they are very hot inside. Serve warm.
