- Cut each pastry in half and roll lighty on a floured board.
- Put one cheese in the middle of each pastry.
- Spoon the pesto on the top of each of the cheeses - dividing it equally between the two.
- Using a pastry brush dip into the egg and brush around the edge of each pastry square.
- Now bring opposite corners of the pastry together in the middle and then bring the opposite corners again together - sealing by pinching together. Better explained when you see the picture.
- Put the parcles on a baking sheet and brush with the beaten egg.
- Now grate the parmesan on top of each parcel.
