Prep Time15 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time40 mins

Ingredients:
 2 sheets puff pastry
 8 oz cream cheese
 1 cup pesto

Directions:
1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment paper and dust lightly with flour.

2

Cut two large circles out of your puff pastry sheets. Set one on the prepared baking sheet.

3

Spread cream cheese over top of the puff pastry in one layer. On top of that, add the pesto. Then top with the second puff pastry circle.

4

To make the pastry star, set a small glass upside down in the middle of the circle. Starting at the glass and cutting outward, divide the pastry into 4 equal quarters. Cut each quarter in half, then each eighth in half, to make 16 equal strips. Remove the glass. Twist strips twice, two at a time, in opposite directions. Pinch the ends together. Repeat with remaining strips to make a star shape.

5

Bake for 20-15 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown.
