Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

  • 1 large onion, minced (about 1 cup)

  • 1 can (about 14 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

  • 1/2 cup minced sun-dried tomato

  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper

  • 2 tsp. minced fresh parsley

  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed

  • 2 tbsp. prepared basil pesto

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.  Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet.  Add the onion, artichokes and tomatoes and cook until the onion is tender and any liquid is evaporated, stirring occasionally.  Stir in the black pepper and parsley.  Remove the skillet from the heat.  Let the vegetable mixture cool for 15 minutes. 

  2. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square.  Cut into 6 (6x4-inch) rectangles.

  3. Spread 1 teaspoon pesto on each pastry rectangle to within 1/4 inch of the edge.  With the long side facing you, spoon about 1/3 cup vegetable mixture on the bottom half of each pastry rectangle.  Fold 2 opposite sides 1/2 inch over the filling.  Starting at a long side, roll up like a jelly roll.  Brush the pastries with the egg.  Place the pastries seam-side down onto a baking sheet.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Let the pastries cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Cut the pastries in half diagonally to serve.  Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar, if desired.

  5. Serving Suggestion: For a more sophisticated presentation, you can serve the spring rolls with the diagonal cut-side up.  Just cut a thin slice from the ends of the spring rolls and stand them on end on the plate.

Tip

Heat is the enemy of Puff Pastry—it handles best when cold. So avoid working with it on hot, humid days, in a stifling hot kitchen or next to your oven.

When serving Puff Pastry, cut with a serrated knife for the most even, attractive presentation.

Puff Pastry can puff up to 8 times its original thickness. That means even a sheet rolled to a thin ¼-inch thickness will rise 2 inches.

Use a marble pastry board to help keep Puff Pastry cold while rolling and cutting.

  • Traditionally, sun-dried tomatoes are dried in the sun for 4-10 days. The process intensifies the flavor and retains the nutritional value.
