  • 1 puff pastry sheet
  • 100 g and chopped ham
  • 100 g grated cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten

For pesto

  • 80 g Parmesan Reggiano
  • 60 g pine nuts
  • 1 large bunch of basil
  • 100 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic


We first make the pesto by crushing all the ingredients in a food processor or blender.

Spread the puff pastry and cut circles about 10-12 cm in diameter.

We make 4 cuts forming a cross without reaching the center of the circle leaving a center of about 2 cm on each side. Paint with the beaten egg.

Put in the center a teaspoon of pesto and top a little ham and grated cheese.

We close a petal by embracing the stuffed len. We continue with the front stop and then with both sides so that we will want a flower of 4 petals and the filling in the center.

Paint with beaten egg by force and bake at 200 ºC for about 15 minutes until golden. Serve with the remaining pesto.
