Blanket; process, stopping once to scrape down side of bowl, until smooth.

If salmon has skin or bones, remove them; rinse the fillet and pat it dry with paper towel.

Cut the salmon into 24 cubes (1 inch).

On a cutting board, roll out 1 pie crust into a 12-inch round.

Cut in 4 rows by 3 rows to make 12 rectangles (4×3 inches).

Repeat with the remaining crust.

(Rectangles cut at the edge of the crust will have a rounded side.)

Place 1 level teaspoon dill pesto in center of each rectangle; top with 1 salmon cube.

Bring 4 corners of each rectangle over filling in center and pinch at top; pinch the corners, leaving small openings on the sides to release the steam.

(For rounded-sided rectangles, bring 3 points together at top, pinching to seal.)

On a large ungreased cookie sheet, place pastries 1 inch apart.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Place remaining pesto in a small resealable plastic bag for food storage.

Cut the small tip from a bottom corner of the bag; squeeze bag to drizzle pesto onto serving platter.

Place the pastries on a serving platter.

Sprinkle pastries with remaining cheese and garnish with dill sprigs.

Serve hot.
