  • 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry
  • 1 egg (and a little water)
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • a small bunch of fresh herbs chopped finely
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C and cover two trays with baking paper.
  2. Separate the puff pastry sheets and allow them to defrost a little - leave the plastic backing on.
  3. Whisk the egg with a little water and brush each sheet of pastry with the egg mixture.
  4. Sprinkle on the grated cheese and chopped herbs.
  5. Cover the topped pastry with a piece of baking paper and give each one a good roll with the rolling pin to squish it all together.
  6. Cut the pastry into 1.5 cm strips , twisting each strip and placing it on the baking tray.
  7. Bake the pastry straws for 10 minutes, or until they are golden and puffed. Turn them over and bake them for another 5 minutes or until golden.
