Super fast and easy appetizer and tasty too! Zaatar is made out of thyme, sumac and sesame seeds for more info and health beneifts on zataar follow this link zaatar-thyme. This amount will make 8-9 rolls, if I am having guest over I double or triple the amount.
I love making this when guest arrive, its so simple to make and impressive to look at! The cream cheese balances out the tangy taste of the zataar to make the perfect combination!
What you will need:
- 4 tbsp softened cream cheese
- 1 thawed out roll of puff pastry
- 1/4 cup zaatar*
Spread cream cheese evenly over puff pastry, sprinkle zatar over the cream cheese. Cut into 3/4 inch strips and roll into wheels, or roll the whole pastry and cut along in 1 inch rolls with pastry cutter. Bake on parchment paper lined baking sheet at 425 till golden.
*You can find ready to use zaatar at your local Middle Eastern store
