Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tip the cream cheese and pesto into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Unroll the pastry on a lightly floured surface and cut in half lengthways. Spread the pesto mix over one half, pop the other piece of pastry on top to create a sandwich, then cut in half lengthways to create 2 long rectangles. Divide each rectangle into short strips, about 1cm thick. Twist each pastry strip and place on a baking tray lined with parchment.
  3. Brush with egg and bake for 20-25 mins until risen and golden brown.

These were delicious and so easy. Could not make them look like picture but made them into bow ties and they were fab.

A quick snack to make - best made and eaten still warm! They didn't look quite a 'neat' as those in the picture, the 2 halves came apart a bit in the cooking but they tasted good. I made some with a cream cheese and pesto filling, and some with cream cheese and chopped black olives and both tasted good.
