Ingredients

  1. Check 2 sheets frozen puff pastry (one 17.3-ounce box), thawed
  2. Check 4ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  3. Check 1/2cup mayonnaise
  4. Check 1/4cup chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish
  5. Check 1tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  6. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  7. Check 1pound lump crabmeat

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Unfold the pastry and, using a 2-inch cookie cutter, cut out rounds. Place them on the prepared baking sheets.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, chives, lemon juice, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Fold in the crabmeat.
  3. Dividing evenly, spoon the crab mixture onto the pastry rounds (about 2 teaspoons each). Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until the puffs are golden and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Sprinkle with additional chives and serve.
