Ingredients:  
12 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1 C. (4 oz.) Grated Parmesan
2 Green Onions, cut into 1 inch pieces
C. Pesto
1 Pkg. (1 lb.) Puff Pastry Thawed enough to roll out but still very cold

Directions:
Directions:
In food processor, combine cream cheese and Parmesan. Add the green onions and process until finely minced. Add the pesto and blend again until mixed.

Take one sheet of puff pastry and roll out on a floured surface to a 10" x 16'' rectangle. Spread the mixture onto the pastry covering it completely. Roll lengthwise like a jellyroll log - it should b about 1 inches in diameter. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and freeze. Repeat with 2nd sheet of puff pastry and remainder of the mixture.

Remove from freezer 15 minutes before baking. Place oven rack on upper ⅓ of oven and preheat to 375 . Slice logs into rounds inch thick. You should get about 50 rounds per log. Place on a baking sheet about 1 inches apart. Bake 10 - 13 minutes until lightly browned.

Personal Notes:
These logs are great to have stored in the freezer. A lifesaver for last minute entertaining.
