Friends…today I bring you Blueberry and Goat Cheese bites!
Here’s another great party appetizer that is fabulous served at room temp, and bonus points that it’s not a cheese ball or dip.
I feel like every time I am searching for something to bring to a party that travels well and can be served at room temp, dips are all I can ever come up with.
The perfect party appetizer that really sends that wow factor in both presentation and in tastiness.
You could double this recipe with no problem if you are wanting more than 12 bites.
How to Make Blueberry and Goat Cheese Bites
Begin by thawing out a sheet of puff pastry and rolling it just slightly thinner.
Then cut into 12 equal(ish) pieces.
Then spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray and push each of the puff pastry pieces into each.
Bake these in a 400 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on how crisp you want them.
They call it puff pastry for a reason, folks. It puffs!
But no worries, use the back of a spoon to make room for the goat cheese and blueberry filling.
Six ounces of goat cheese and some blueberry preserves is the filling.
I have made them before using less goat cheese, but they just aren’t the same.
You could also use cream cheese if you’re not a huge fan of goat cheese.
First goes in the goat cheese.
Then top each one off with the blueberry preserves.
And back into the oven for a few more minutes.
Top these gorgeous Blueberry and Goat Cheese Bites with fresh thyme and enjoy!
They take a while to come to room temp, and try to refrain from digging in right away like I did.
Very messy and very hot!

Blueberry and Goat Cheese Bites
Blueberry and Goat Cheese Bites are the perfect party appetizer, they travel well, are perfect served at room temp, and absolutely stunning!
- 1 puff pastry sheet
- flour (for flouring the surface where you roll the puff pastry)
- nonstick cooking spray
- 6 oz goat cheese
- 6 oz blueberry preserves
- Optional: fresh thyme for garnish
Leave the puff pastry sheet at room temp for 20 minutes. Then carefully unfold and lay flat on a floured surface. Roll the puff pastry sheets with a rolling pin lightly and cut the sheet into 12 equal pieces.
Spray a muffin tin with the non stick spray and put a puff pastry piece in each, push them in slightly. Put in a 400 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes (depending on how crisp you want them).
Note: If they puff up too much just use a spoon to push the center down slightly.
Spoon the goat cheese in each puff pastry piece and a spoonful of the blueberry preserves over the cream cheese. Put back into the 400 degree oven for 6 to 8 more minutes.
Let them cool slightly before removing them from the muffin tins. Garnish with fresh thyme leaves if desired.
