Parmesan Puff Stars

Fri, 18th of December

This is the time of year when people drop in for a visit. That is what the festive season is all about, but unexpected guests can be stressful. These puff pastry parmesan stars are the perfect bite to give to friends with a drink, and using shop bought puff pastry makes this a really quick solution for entertaining. Pop them in the oven for 15 minutes and warm, crumbly cheesy morsels can be munched on while you catch up with your loved ones.
