Truffle-Shallot Bites by Chef Cheryl Schaefer Harmons

Makes approximately 18 servings

Prep time 20 minutes

Bake time 10 minutes


  • 1 Pkg. Puff Pastry Sheets, frozen, thawed
  • 3 Cups Shallots, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp White Truffle Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Harmons Salted Butter
  • 1 Tbsp Thyme leaves, fresh
  • 1 tsp Truffle Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 3 Oz. Comté Cheese, shredded (can substitute Gruyere)


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In large sauté pan over medium heat, sauté shallots in truffle oil and butter until tender, approximately 10 minutes.
  3. Season with thyme, salt and pepper.
  4. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll and lay out one sheet of puff pastry. Using a pizza wheel or sharp knife, cut the pastry into 9 equal pieces, like a tic-tac-toe board. Separate pieces giving them at least one inch between squares.
  5. Using a micro-plane, grate cheese over each square making a light layer of cheese.
  6. Place one tablespoon of sautéed shallots in the center of each square. Using your fingertip, gently spread the shallots almost out to the edge of the pastry. Leave at least ¼” around the edges.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes. Repeat with second sheet of puff pastry. Serve hot or at room temperature
