Salty parmesan sticks

salty parmesan sticks pastry recipe easy figsandrosemary.blogspot.com

I was experimenting the other day with salty puff pastry sticks, and I thought the idea of adding some grated parmesan cheese to make it tastier. It's simple to make, you only have to spend more time rolling the pastry strips into twirls, but as you can see in the photo, it's doable. This is a snack great for starters or to serve with soup. We wanted to have this with the pumpkin soup we made, but by the time we got to eating, the girls had already whisked away most of the sticks. Seriously, if 2 and 5 year olds like stuff like this, it means it's good.

Type of dish: snack, appetizer, starter
Cost: medium
Difficulty:  medium
Time:  40 min
Serves: 6 people
Preparation time: 25 min
Baking Time: 15 min
Oven Temp: 180C

What you need to prepare this dish:
sharp knife, a grater, parchment paper, rolling pin

  • 1 pack puff pastry
  • coarse salt
  • parmesan
How to prepare:

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Roll out the puff pastry so it lays flat . Using the sharp knife carefull cut the pastry into 1cm stripes. Now, sprinkle the whole pastry with a pinch of salt and grate some parmesan. Take the rolling pin (or an empty wine bottle) and gently roll over the pastry, so the salt and parmesan is pressed onto the pastry. Now, take the last stripe and start twisting it over to form a pencil like twizller. Anyway, twist till the top and roll over to a piece of parchment paper. Proceed with the rest and place the paper in the oven, for 15 min. After that time, the sticks are ready, just let them cool for 5 min.

Additional information:
You can make these sticks with only salt and pepper, or just cheese, or add some cayenne pepper to them. In any version it's great.
