Ricotta bites

This is an example of the little bites we make very often. They are both delicious and very easy to make. 
Just a few ingredients and steps, and they are ready to be eaten!

At first,  lay 10 slices of puff pastry out (on your counter) to defrost a little(or until you can work with them).
You don't want them completely defrosted, because then they are going to stick. 
Secondly, take out the rest of you ingredients:

250 gr ricotta (italian cheese)
1 tbs créme fraiche 
1 egg, beaten
salt and pepper

 Now preheat your oven at 200 C. 

In a large bowl, mix the ricotta, créme fraiche, parsley and chervil together. We use about 1 tbs of kervel and about 5 sprigs of parsley, but you can always add more if you like more. 

Finally season the mixture with a good amount of freshly ground black pepper and some salt. 

We like to make 20 ricotta bites out of this mixture so we cut each slice of puff pastry through the middle. Then we divide the mixure(on the pixture above). Make sure you do it on one side so you can fold the puff pastry over like the picture underneath. 

Then, with a fork, seal your puff pastry. 

Place your ricotta bites on a with parchment paper lined baking sheet and brush them with some egg wash(a beaten egg). 

In the oven for 20 minutes at 200 C or until they are golden brown. 
At the 10 min. mark you want to flip them over so that both sides are evenly cooked.
