Dinner Party Snacks: Prosciutto, Basil and Parmesan Puff Pastry Twists

Prosciutto, basil and parmesan puff pastry twists

These puff pastry twists are great for dinner parties – on their own or as an accompaniament to dips such as spicy tomato or baba ganoush.

They take no time to make – you can use gluten-free puff pastry as well, but will disappear just as quickly so make at least a couple of batches.

And kids love them too!

Made these the other day and they were great! Loved the natural “bacon” flavour.
