Instructions
  1. Thaw puff pastry up to 40 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Roll out puff pastry, and cut out circles using a knife. Cut 4 circles in each row of the folding, getting 12 out of the sheet. Lay out the circles of pastry onto baking sheet. Cover with a layer of parchment or foil, and top with another baking sheet. This will prevent it from rising too much. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the second layer of foil or parchment paper, and bak another 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a medium bowl, dissolve saffron threads in warm water.
  4. In a saute pan, heat the butter over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Then, in the same bowl you used to dissolve the saffron, add the shallots, creme fraiche, crab meat and salt & pepper. Mix well and season to taste.
  5. Slice the apples very thin (on a mandolin) and rub with the lemon to keep them from browning.
  6. Assembly: Top each piece of puff pastry with a square of prosciutto, a slice or two of EverCrisp® apple, crab meat and a squeeze of lemon. Garnish with thai pepper, parsley and a dash of paprika for color. Enjoy!
