B’s Blog Bread Sticks

These are really fun to make.
You need to make sure you have an adult to help you with the oven – to keep safe.

INGREDIENTS
1 packet savoury pastry
Pesto
Pancetta – optional
Baking paper

METHOD
Pre-heat oven to 180° C.
Place one pastry sheet onto some baking paper and spread a generous amount of pesto over it. Add pancetta and place another pastry sheet over the top. Press down.
Cut pastry into strips and twist from each end. Place on the baking paper and bake for 20 minutes or until the pastry is nice and golden.
