Parmesan Cheese Straws
Puff Pastry Parmesan Cheese Straws
makes about 15 straws
These are a very quick and easy breezy appetizer using store bought frozen puff pastry! You
can store the puff pastry in your freezer for months and just pull out about 30 minutes before
you want to whip up a batch of these!
preheat oven to 375 degrees
line two baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside
1 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
2 sheets thawed puff pastry (follow package directions to thaw)
Dust your work surface with about 1/4 cup cheese.
Place the puff pastry on top of cheese and unfold. Sprinkle another 1/4 cup cheese on top and
roll out slightly. Fold over right to left. Sprinkle another 1/4 cup cheese on top and roll out slightly
again, pressing down to stick the two layers together.
Using a sharp knife, cut into strips about 1 inch wide. Holding the end of each strip twist from
each end to give a spiraled look and place on the prepared baking sheet. Press down on ends
so the strips do not untwist.
Place the sheet in refrigerator for at least 10 minutes, or up to an hour, to chill. This will ensure
that the straws “puff”.
While they are chilling repeat the process with the second sheet of puff pastry.
After the first sheet is finished chilling, remove from refrigerator and bake for approximately 20
minutes. Let cool slightly on sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack. Bake second sheet.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
These are best eaten the day they are baked, but no worries, because there won’t be any
