Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a quick and easy app to fix if you have some unexpected guests during the holidays. During the first baking, the puff pastry "puffed." I just pressed down the middle.

I loved the mix of flavors. Next time I may try sprinkling some balsamic vinegar over it after it comes out of the oven. Yum!
