Pesto Parm Pastry Straws

This simple crowd-pleaser is pure genius. It’s easy to make, yet looks and tastes like an event-worthy hors d’oeuvre. Perfect for a casual cocktail party, when revelers want to munch on delicious apps without ever having to set down that glass of Bourbon Barrel-aged Cabernet Sauvignon.
