Make a Pesto Pastry Star with only 3 ingredients! This treat is simple, easy, and extremely visually satisfying for any occasion.

 2 sheets puff pastry
 8 oz cream cheese
 1 cup pesto

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


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


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.


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.


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