Gluten Free Cheese and Pesto Straws (dairy free)


  • 1 packet of gluten free Jus-Rol puff pastry
  • gluten free & dairy free pesto homemade or bought
  • dairy free cheese grated
  • egg beaten (for the egg wash)
  • salt and pepper


  • Remove your gluten free pastry from the fridge and packaging for around 5 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  • Prepare a baking tray with some baking paper.
  • Cut your sheet of pastry exactly in half and place one piece on your tray.
  • Spread the pastry with a layer of pesto, leave a very small gap around the edges of the pastry.
  • Sprinkle a good layer of dairy free grated cheese on top of the pesto.
  • Place the other half of your gluten free pastry on top.
  • Using a sharp knife cut your filled pastry into strips, about the width of a cheese straw! (See in the pictures!)
  • Hold onto the ends of the strips and twist a few times.
  • Brush on some of your egg wash, this will help the cheese straws go golden in colour.
  • Sprinkle on more dairy free cheese all over the top.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for around 20 minutes or until the pastry and cheese is golden.
  • Remove from the oven, allow to cool if you want.. or eat them hot!!
  • I sprinkle some fresh chives over mine for an extra flavour (I LOVE CHIVES!).
  • Enjoy!


These can be made vegan if you don't use the egg wash, the cheese makes these pretty golden anyway!
