Recipe by Chef floWer
I made these for Christmas 2005 with my daughter. She enjoyed making and eating them. The plate was empty in a few minutes. This recipe came from a little book called 'Bites' by The Australian Women's Weekly - Creative food

This is unbelievably easy and super quick to make. I made the recipe exactly as stated (with 2T of butter, 2T of pesto and one sheet of Pillsbury Crescents). I spread the mixture basically evenly on the pastry sheet. (Note that I used a silicone cookie-sheet liner and didn't grease the cookie pan, and it was just fine). Instead of cutting into stars (which would, to me, waste a lot of the goodness of the recipe), I cut the pieces into little squares. I cooked for almost 10 minutes (about 9 1/2, to be exact) at 400-degrees and they were awesome. Next time I make these, I might try adding a bit of garlic and parmesan cheese to top off.
- 30 g butter, softened
