Ingredients

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

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
