This pull-apart Pesto & Goat Cheese Snowflake Pastry is a beautiful, festive appetizer for the holiday season. With just 6 ingredients, you can make this fast, easy and impressive appetizer for your Christmas party! One sheet of puff pastry makes 3 snowflakes!
1/4cupfinely grated parmesan cheeseplus 2 tablespoons for topping
1/4cupfinely chopped roasted red pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix the goat cheese, pesto, roasted red pepper and parmesan cheese. Stir until well combined.
Cut the pastry into 20 evenly shaped squares (4 rows by 5 columns). You can use a pizza cutter to make this easier.
Scoop about a teaspoon of goat cheese mixture into each square in a diagonal line. Roll the corners that don't have goat cheese toward the middle and over the goat cheese mixture. Pinch the rolled edges together over the goat cheese.
Assemble 6 rolled squares into a snowflake shape. You'll have enough squares to make 3 snowflakes. Press the middle of the snowflake so the squares are connected together. Brush the whisked egg over the snowflake and sprinkle with the remaining parmesan cheese. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the pastry is turning golden brown. Cool for a couple minutes so they're safe to touch and serve while warm.
