Leave out pre-made puff pastry to thaw. Preheat oven to 400 F. 


Prepare a cheese mixture filling with shredded white cheddar, parmesan, garlic powder and red pepper flakes; Mix well and set aside. 


To a food processor add tarragon, oregano, parsley, thyme, Drizzle, pine nuts and parmesan and blend. Add to a bowl and top with more Drizzle and set aside. 


Once the puff pastry has thawed, lay it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Using a knife create a border and perforate the middle section of the puff pastry with a fork.


To the middle section, layer with muenster cheese and then the cheese mixture.
