Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup marinated quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 2 tablespoons pitted Greek olives
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds

Unfold one pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface; spread half of the cream cheese over half of pastry. Top with half of the artichoke mixture. Sprinkle with half of the Parmesan cheese. Fold plain half over filling; press gently to seal.
