Spinach and Cheese Pie

Spinach and Cheese Pie

Ingredients:

  • 1 (10 oz) bag of frozen spinach (thawed and drained)
  • ½ (8 0z) package of reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 (17 oz) package of frozen puff pastry sheets (thawed)
  • 1 large egg

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Squeeze as much excess liquid as possible out of spinach using paper towels. 
  3. In a medium bowl stir the cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese together. Stir in spinach then season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Roll both sheets of pastry into 10×10-inch squares. Cut each sheet into 6 rectangles. Spoon the cheese mixture into the center of 6 rectangles (about 3 tbsp) leaving ½ and inch around the edges. 
  5. Place the remaining six rectangles on top and seal edges with a fork. 
  6. In a small bowl beat the egg. Brush the egg onto the tops of the pies. Poke holes in the tops of the pies and bake for 15-20 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown.
