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

Top with half of the artichoke mixture. Sprinkle with half of the Parmesan cheese. Fold plain half over filling; press gently to seal.
Repeat with remaining pastry, cream cheese, artichoke mixture and Parmesan cheese. Whisk egg and water; brush over tops. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cut each rectangle into sixteen 3/4-in.-wide strips. Twist strips several times; place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
