This recipe is a great way of using left over pastry – I am using puff here but you can use short crust as well. Be warned, they are so delicious no one will be able to resist them!
Approx 100g left over pastry
60g cheddar cheese
1 tbs (tablespoon) Parmesan cheese
A good pinch cayenne pepper
1 egg beaten
When using left over puff pastry make sure you fold together your leftovers – to make sure the straws puff. Roll out to 5mm thick
Brush on the beaten egg, sprinkle with half the cheese and a good sprinkle of cayenne
Fold the pastry into thirds, and roll again
Repeat with beaten egg, cheese, and pepper
Fold again and roll out to 5mm thick
Cut into 1cm strips and bake in a preheated oven 180 fan for 20 mins
Leave to cool – if you can! – and enjoy!
