SUNDRIED TOMATO FETA & PESTO PALMIERS

SUNDRIED TOMATO FETA & PESTO PALMIERS

P1014671.JPG

When I think of puff pastry and snacks, I instantly think of sausage rolls, but puff pastry is more versatile then just stuffing it with meat. Palmiers are described as a sweet crisp pastry shaped like a palm leaf. These however are their savoury cousins filled with sundried tomato, feta and pesto ideal for the vegetarians. All rolled up and cut into the traditional shape.

Ingredients:

  • 1x 375g Pack Shop Brought Puff Pastry/ See Recipe Here
  • 125g Feta (Crumbled)
  • 50g Sun Dried Tomatoes (Roughy Chopped)
  • 2./3 Tbsp Green Pesto
  • 1 Egg (Well Beaten)

Method:

  1. Roll out your pastry into a 25x30cm rectangle on a lightly floured surface. 
  2. Spread the pesto on the pastry sheet to within 1cm of the edge. Top with the sun dried tomatoes and the crumbled feta cheese. Brush the 1cm exposed edges with the beaten egg.
  3. Starting at the long sides, fold the pastry towards the centre, leaving a 0.5cm space in the middle.  Do the same with the opposite side of the pastry, until you have two rolled pieces of pastry meeting in the middle.
  4. Heat the oven to 200°c.  Cut the rolled pastry into 0.5cm slices. Place the slices, cut-side down, onto 2 baking sheets.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown, turning the pastries over once halfway through baking.  Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and let cool on wire racks for 10 minutes.
