Christmas Party Puff Pastry Canapes

Christmas Party Puff Pastry Canapes are tender puff pastries and are prepared with two different toppings to whet the appetites of your Christmas party guests. In one hand, they’ll have tart pears topped with walnuts and sweet honey, and in the other, salty prosciutto and sundried tomato with bitter arugula. Both are layered on a creamy ricotta cheese base. Everything needed to make this budget-friendly, delicious decadence can be found at Walmart for less than $1.70 a serving.  Christmas Party Puff Pastry Canapes  Prep time: 15 minutes  Cook time: 30 minutes  Serves: 8 (4 canapes each)  Ingredients for the Christmas Party Puff Pastry Canapes:  • 1 450 g package butter puff pastry, thawed  • 1 egg, lightly beaten  • 1 cup (250 mL) ricotta cheese  • 1/2 pear, thinly sliced  • 1/4 cup (125 mL) toasted walnuts, chopped  • 3 tbsp.
