  • Portion size 30 servings
  • Credits : Holiday Best 2003

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (397 g) puff pastry thawed
  • 1 egg
Filling:
  • 3 heads (about 60 cloves) garlic
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Line 2 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper: set aside.

Filling: Separate and peel garlic cloves; cut large cloves in half. In small saucepan, toss garlic with oil; cover and cook over medium-low heat, shaking pan often, until golden and softened, 20 minutes. Transfer to bowl; using fork, mash until smooth. Add basil, salt and pepper.

On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry into 16- x 12-inch (40 x 30 cm) rectangle. Spread with filling, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) border. Whisk egg with 1 tbsp (15 mL) water; brush lightly over border.

Starting at 1 long edge, roll up firmly just to centre; starting at opposite long edge, roll up other side to centre to form scroll shape. Lightly brush rolled edges where they meet with remaining egg mixture; press together lightly to adhere. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour or for up to 24 hours.

Using serrated knife, trim off ends; cut into scant 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Place on prepared pans. (Make-ahead: Cover; refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Or freeze on waxed paper in airtight container and freeze for up to 2 weeks. Bake from frozen.)

Bake in centre of 425F (220C) oven until puffed and golden, about 15 minutes.
