Nana's Pesto Pin-Wheel Rolls~pg. 55

La Dolce Vegan! Challenge:

Tyler & Phoebe's Perfect Pesto Sauce~pg. 177

Basil-one of my favorite herbs; next to cilantro, that is!

They look like seashells!

After reading Joel's post about cooking these I decided to follow the prepping and cooking directions on the puff pastry box. I didn't roll out the dough, I left it the size it was. I also baked these at 400 degrees for 15 minutes as it suggested. They turned out great. Well, since I had half a bowl of pesto left and another puff pastry sheet already thawed out I decided to try a quick version of this recipe. Making pinwheels and trying to cut them is too labor-intensive for me! I patted my puff pastry dough into a jelly-roll size pan and spread the remaining pesto on top.

This is why it's called 'puff' pastry! You should have seen it in the oven; I thought it was gonna explode. It still tastes delicious though.

I cut these into squares with scissors;
 guess what I had for breakfast with a glass of soymilk?!


  1. mmm.. I love pesto too! Everything looks great! That is funny when you were talking about the dough looking like it was going to explode in the oven. I am glad it did not puff up over that would have been a horrible mess. Have a great day & weekend!!

  2. Yeah, I'm glad it didn't make a mess in my oven; I just cleaned it last week!
