Because of the long winters in Finland, the cuisine incorporates many forms of smoking, pickling and preserving. This dish is one of my favorite ways to use smoked salmon any time of year.

Ingredients
  • 1 tub (7 ounces) Finlandia Black Garlic Creamy Gourmet Cheese
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 sheets (1.1 lbs) frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed according to package directions
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Sesame seeds
Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or non-stick foil.

In a medium bowl, combine Finlandia Black Garlic Creamy Gourmet Cheese, smoked salmon, dill, lemon zest, lemon juice and black pepper.

Roll one puff pastry sheet into a 9-x-12-inch rectangle. Cut into 12, 3-x-3-inch square pieces. Spoon about 1-1/2 teaspoons of salmon filling into each square. Fold over into a triangle and press down edges with a fork. Repeat with second puff pastry sheet and remaining filling.

Brush the top of each pasty with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.
