1 pack ready rolled puff pastry
¾ jar red pesto and/or green pesto
One egg, beaten
55g / 2oz Parmesan, grated.
AND THIS IS WHAT YOU DO…
Preheat the oven to 200c/Fan 180c/Gas 6.
Unroll the pastry. Roll out on a floured board.
Spread over the pesto, and scatter over half the Parmesan cheese.
Roll the pastry up from the short sides, inwards towards the centre.
Cut into 1 cm strips. Lay, on their sides, on two non-stick trays.
Brush palmiers with an egg wash and then scatter the rest of the Parmesan over half of the palmiers.
Bake in the oven for 7-8 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack.
