We were invited to an open house the night before Christmas Eve, and, of course, we would never show up empty handed. I rolled up some pesto coated puff pastry and created some festive pesto palmiers for the occasion. This quick and tasty appetizer is always a crowd pleaser. This particular batch was not nearly as flavorful as my previous attempts…I think due to a lackluster pesto I found deep in my freezer. My only alteration from the original recipe was to roll up each side like a classic palmier versus just folding.
- 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan
