One of my most favorite parts of the holiday season is the food.  Shocking, I know!  In particular, it’s the finger food.  The grazing, the meals made of little bites, and the ability to chat with friends and family while nibbling on favorite appetizers.  Forget a big, over the top meal – that’s what Thanksgiving is for! – instead, I love meals made of appetizers.

One of my absolute favorite appetizers from my childhood are these Mini Cheese and Onion Pastries.  Using the word pastries in a recipe title makes it sound a lot more sophisticated, don’t you think?  We’ll keep it a secret between you and me that these bite sized morsels  take only four ingredients and 15 minutes to prepare.  Sharp cheddar cheese and sliced green onion is gathered in the center of a dill dusted flaky pastry bundle.  If you’re able to only eat one or two, you definitely have stronger will power than I do!
