Jack-o'-Lantern Sandwich Bites
A fun, quick dinner before the Trick-or-Treating begins!Yield: Serves: 12
|1 box||refrigerated pie crust|
|8 ounces||thinly sliced black forest or virginia ham|
|8 ounces||thinly sliced cheddar or Swiss cheese|
Heat oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil.
Unroll pie crusts. Cut each crust into 24 pumpkin shapes with a 3-in. pumpkin cookie cutter. Using a 1/2-in. triangular cookie (aspic) cutter or a sharp knife, cut out eyes and a nose from 12 of the cutouts.
Using a 2-in. round cutter, cut 24 rounds from the sliced ham and 24 rounds from the sliced Cheddar.
Place 2 slices Cheddar in the center of each of the 12 solid pumpkins; top each with 2 slices of ham. With a small brush, brush beaten egg around edges. Top with remaining pumpkins with cut-out faces, carefully pressing on edges to seal.
Place on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with beaten egg. Bake 12 to 15 minutes until light golden. Let cool on rack 5 minutes before serving.
