Date: 09 Mar 2014 Author: Jacqui Categories: Savory Snacks & Nibbles Comments



  • 57g butter, room temperature
  • 165g of either Ricotta cheese, Cream cheese or Stracchino/Certosa Cheese
  • 113g Gluten Free Flour Mix (see below)


  • Pesto
  • Frozen spinach, thawed
  • Mozzarella, finely cubed


Put all the dough ingredients in the bowl of your stand mixer and combine to form dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 160 C degrees. On lightly floured surface roll the dough into a 14 inch circle. Cut into 8 triangles. With a teaspoon, smooth on some pesto all over the triangles. Place some spinach over that and then the cubed mozzarella on the wider part of the triangles. Gently (as pastry is delicate) roll each triangle from wide end to tip, turning ends to form a crescent shape. Brush the tops with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Place on baking sheet.

Bake 30 min till golden.  Serve warm.
