On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry sheet to a 14" square. Cut puff pastry into 2"

Meanwhile, in a med. Mixing bowl or food processor bowl, combine smoked trout, sour cream, lemon juice, horseradish & honey mustard. Beat with an electric mixer or cover & process till almost smooth. Fit a pastry bag with large star tip & fill with smoked trout mixture. (Or fill a self-sealing plastic bag with mixture & snip 1/4" off one corner). Pipe filling on top of each pastry. Top each appetizer with sprig of dill, if desired. Spoon 1/8 tsp. Caviar onto each. Refrigerate till serving time.
Note: When using caviar from a jar, place in a tea strainer and rinse gently to remove excess salt & dye before using. Instead of the puff pastry, the smoked trout can
be served on plain crackers or party pumpernickel or rye bread.
