Preparation Time

30 minutes


1 sheet puff pastry, thawed

2 Tbsp commercial pesto

6 thin slices orange cheddar (or American) cheese


Spread the pesto evenly over the full sheet of puff pastry dough.

Lay the cheese slices evenly over the pesto layer.

Start rolling the long side of the dough and continue until reaching the middle of the pastry sheet.

Roll the opposite end in to meet the first roll.

Chill until the scroll holds its shape for cutting. (completely frozen is too difficult to cut)

Cut the roll into half-inch thick slices with a bread knife.

Place the slices on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.

Bake at 425 °F for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown.

(You can also call purchased tortilla wrap sliced appetizers “parchment scrolls” for an easier recipe.)
