Pesto Twists

I know this looks like it’s a bit of a cheaters ‘bake’ but sometimes the easy options are the best.
As I had spent a full evening preparing the caramel squares for a work fuddle, I also wanted to make something savoury but it had to be fairly quick and easy. And let’s face it, who doesn’t love a bit of cheese and pesto. With 3 simple ingredients and 20 odd minutes, what could be better.


1 pack of puff pastry (500g)

1 jar of pesto

½ cup of grated parmesan


1. Pre-heat the oven to 180oc

2. Roll out the puff pastry until it’s about the thickness of the a 50 pence. 

3. Spread the pesto over the pastry leaving about ½ an inch from the edge, sprinkle over the cheese, then fold the pastry in half bring together two of the edges that don’t have any pesto.

4. Cut into 12 strips and twist each strips 4-5 times.

5. Place onto a parchment lined baking tray and bake for roughly 10-15 minutes until the edges have started to go golden brown, then leave to cool.
