Ingredients

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