Pesto and cheese puff pastry twists

Mandy Mazliah
I’ve always considered pesto, cheese and pastry to be a heavenly combination and these puff pastry twists have only confirmed my view. A great snack, appetiser or lunch box filler.

  • 320 g sheet of ready rolled puff pastry
  • 4 tbsp pesto - I used homemade kale pesto but ready made works well too.
  • 50 g grated cheddar cheese or vegan alternative


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan)/200°C/gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper (or use the paper that the pastry is wrapped in).
  • Unroll the pastry. Spread the pesto over the pastry.
  • Sprinkle over the grated cheddar.
  • Cut into 10-12 strips and twist each one several times. If the cheese falls out push it back in.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool slightly on a wire rack before serving.
  • These are delicious warm or allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
