  • 100g cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp fresh pesto
  • 320g sheet puff pastry
  • a little flour, for dusting

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.
