Christmas pastry wreaths


  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry
  • Olive oil spray
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Sea salt


Preheat oven to 180°C. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Place pastry sheets on work surface to defrost, this takes about 10 minutes.

Cut each pastry sheet into 12 ribbons, approximately 1cm wide.

Roll each ribbon into a sausage (albeit a very thin one). Twist two ‘sausages’ together, shape into a ring and press ends together. Place wreath on prepared baking tray.

Repeat with remaining pastry. Spray wreaths with olive oil, sprinkle with parmesan and salt.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until puffed and golden.

Cool slightly before serving, or store until needed (see Note below).


  • A tasty, crunchy pre-dinner nibbly thing.
  • Make a day or so in advance, store in an air-tight container and reheat for 5 minutes in the oven before serving.
