Two of my favourite things-cheese & pesto encased in flaky puff pastry......................I'm sorry I drifted off there! These are great for a snack or party & it's easy to double up the recipe!
Makes 8 Approx 27p each
Prep time 15 minutes Cooking time 15 minutes
1 sheet ready rolled puff pastry
½ jar pesto (I used green but red would work just as well!)
80g grated cheddar
Pre-heat the oven to 180Fan/200C/Gas 6.
Lay the pastry out on to a floured work surface &, working lengthways roll it out to the thickness of a 2p coin.
Using a round cutter approximately 11cm diameter or a small plate or saucer cut out 8 rounds. Roll each circle to an oval shape.
Place 2 tsp pesto in the middle of the pastry making sure you leave a border. On top of the pesto put 2 tsp grated cheese.
Brush one edge of the pastry with egg wash & carefully fold over pressing the edges down with a fork.
Repeat with the rest & place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Make a small hole in each one & brush with egg wash.
Place in the oven for 15 minutes until golden brown.
Serve warm or cold.
