Over here we have some puff pastry treats like puff pastry horns filled with a thick roux based Mornay(cheese) sauce. The ones I made are much lighter, made with ricotta and... much easier to make thanks to the Italians. In fact this whole recipe is very little like a Belgian recipe. But ricotta is now available everywhere and I like to work with it. It's somewhat dryer than the ones made with Mornay, but hey.

These are so easy to make in lots of variations according to your own inspiration. I don't bother making my own puff pastry since there are a lot available in any supermarket, rolled out and ready to go. Simply cut some rounds out with a glass or another shape you like. You need 2 of these disks per pastry; they are rather small, it's fingerfood after all. Beat an egg with a tbsp of water. Lay half of the disks on the table and brush these on the outer 1/2 inch of the rounds with beaten egg.

Put a tbsp of filling in the middle of those disks. Now take an unbrushed disk, gently stretch a little to make it a little bigger and lay over the disks on the table. Push the sides with your fingers or using a fork to close them.

Brush some of the beaten egg over the top and bake in the oven at 200°C (around 400°F) for 20 minutes. Done. I served this with a little sweet chili sauce. Nice as an amuse with your aperitif.

Filling; ricotta, a large egg, a small handful of breadcrumbs, grated Gruyère cheese, a little Italian dried ham, a little chopped parcely, s&p.

I saw that Hoser made ravioli this weekend using a very similar filling. I suggest to take a look over there too! Here; http://foodsoftheworld.activeboards.net/cheese-ravioli_topic1843.html
