We sent out a heart-felt Christmas letter this year—yes, with an update on our family—but also with a tender reminder of the things, big and small, that we are grateful for.

The Great Constellation

With winter solstice, come and gone, we now look forward to the days getting a little longer. Which reminds me of the Great Constellation. Did you see it, too? Where Jupiter and Saturn align, resembling the Christmas star, it was a great thing to see on our nighttime walk last week.

Grape Gruyere Puff Pastry Bites

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 40 mins
Yield: 6


  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 3 TBSP butter
  • 2 cups red seedless grapes, halved
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup grated Gruyere cheese
  • Kosher salt to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Roll out puff pastry into a 12’’x12’’ square. Divide the sheet into 12 squares and place each of them in a lightly greased muffin tin and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add grapes, rosemary, and walnuts and sauté until softened and fragrant, 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Take muffin tin out of the refrigerator. Working quickly, evenly divide the sautéed grapes into each cup. Brush the exposed edges of the pastry with egg wash, then top each cup with the grated Gruyere cheese, about 1 Tbsp. If the tin and puff pastry no longer feel chilled, place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes.
  • Bake cups for 20-25 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
