Speedy Cheese Straws

A delightfully quick and simple twist on the old party favourites suited for lunch boxes and picnics, or even just to snack on. Be warned though, they are extremely more-ish!



500g puff pastry

200g cheese



Preheat oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4.

Grate cheese and set aside.

On a floured surface, roll out the pastry to a thickness of approximately ¾ of a centimetre.

Brush the entire surface of the pastry with water.

Sprinkle cheese over one half of the pastry surface. Fold remaining half over to cover the cheese. Roll again to a thickness of approximately 1cm.

Cut into strips measuring approximately 6″ x 1″ thick. Slightly twist each strip and place on a greased baking tray, ensuring enough space surrounds each strip to allow for expansion as it bakes.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden.

Transfer onto a wire rack to cool.
