Ingredients

  • 1/2 pkg (450 g pkg) puff pastry thawed
  • 2 tablespoons pesto

Method

On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry into 10-inch (25 cm) square. Brush with pesto. Cut in half crosswise. Cut each half crosswise into 12 equal strips.

Starting from centre of each strip, twist to form 6-inch (15 cm) straw. Freeze on parchment paper-lined baking sheets until firm, 15 minutes. (Make-ahead: Freeze in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.)

Bake straws in 425?F (220?C) oven until pastry is crisp and golden, 12 minutes.
