If you are using home-made puff pastry, roll it out thinly (1-2 mm or 1/8 inch) into a large rectangle and cut into 2 equal pieces.

If you are using ready-rolled pastry, as in the photo, cut the circle into 2 equal halves.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Bake for about 20 minutes until nicely browned and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Serve warm or cold.

Remarks

The tapenade gives these twists quite a strong flavour, but for a bit of extra punch, pepper them generously after glazing.
