Holiday Stars

Holiday Stars
by Tracy
adapted from this recipe

makes 18

2 sheets frozen puff pastry - thawed
1 egg beaten with 1 Tablespoon water
1/3 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon fresh dill
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 ounce red caviar, orange salmon roe, or black lumpfish caviar
2 Tablespoons chives, minced 

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Lay out one sheet of puff pastry. Cut out nine 3-inch pastry stars and brush the tops with the egg/water mixture. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet. Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet for 12-15 minutes. Stars should be puffy and golden. Let cool completely.

Mix together the sour cream, dill and lemon juice. With a tiny spoon, put a small amount of the mixture on the middle of each star. Top with caviar and minced chives. Serve.
