To Eat an Avocado

My favorite way to serve an avocado is to put the most amazing blend of flavors together with it.
First, get a puff pastry sheet from the frozen section of your grocery store. Thaw it according to package directions. This is very important, because improper thawing will affect the quality of your final product.
Next, lay out the puff pastry sheet and cut it into equal(ish) squares. 
On half the squares, smear some cream cheese, top with finely chopped avocado, and a dollop of your favorite chunky salsa. (The more runny your salsa, the messier this becomes.) Make sure to leave plenty of room around the edges!
Finally, take an empty square and use it to make the roof of the pocket. Crimp the edges. However you do it, seal those edges as best you can. It takes practice, and sometimes stuff oozes out. Not a big deal, you just don't want all your toppings to end up all over your baking sheet. 
Cook at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Then enjoy.
I enjoy them so much that this picture was taken as I was ready to finish the last pastry. Which is why there isn't much left. Oops. 

**Note: The size of these can be whatever you make them. Although you get more filling and less pastry if you make them 4"x4" rather than 2" squares. Experiment and adjust to your taste.
