Easy Appetizer: Artichoke Heart Pockets

As I’ve mentioned in the past, my bread and butter isn’t actually this blog. My day job is serving as a food stylist and recipe developer for retail brands. I help create recipes and photo shoots for the brands’ Instagram pages, websites, and advertising campaigns. They even let me eat, I mean, clean up after I am done. It’s a tough job. Recently, I teamed up with Reese Specialty Foods to create a scrumptious recipe using their jarred artichoke hearts for their Instagram page. Well, the results were so delicious that I simply had to share it with you, my lovely readers. So bookmark this page because you’re about to get an easy appetizer recipe to add to your repertoire: Artichoke Heart Pockets!

Artichoke Heart Pockets


  • 1 jar of Reese Quartered Marinated Artichoke Hearts
  • 8 slices of jalapeño jack cheese
  • 1 can of pre-made crescent pastry puff
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary
  • 1 egg yoke


  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Separate and lay out the pastry puff triangles on a large piece of parchment paper. In the center of a pastry triangle, place a slice of cheese, a Reese Marinated Artichoke Heart, and a garnish of fresh rosemary. Repeat.
  3. Fold the ends of the pastry over the base, creating a pocket around the artichoke heart.
  4. Place the Artichoke Heart Pockets on the lined cookie sheet and brush the top of the pastry with the egg yoke wash.
  5. Bake approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove, let cool slightly, and enjoy!
