Cheats Cheese Straws

I love making my own pastry and generally if making puff pastry I make 3 or 4 lots at the same time and freeze them, so I always have some ready to go.
These are made with shop bought frozen sheets and take no time at all. You can switch them up and add bacon bits or leave out everything and just use cheese. Either way, they are a crowd pleaser.Ingredients4 sheets frozen puff pastry
350g grated vintage cheddar
Salt flakes
Ground black pepper
Caramelised onion chutney (optional)
Vegemite (optional)Method
Take one sheet of pastry and if using spread a thin layer of vegemite or caramelised onion chutney. Top with a layer of cheese and black pepper.
Fold in half and use a rolling pin to press them together.
Add another layer of cheese on top and roll into the pastry again with the rolling pin.
Cut into thin slices and twist each one. Place onto a baking tray lined with wax paper and repeat until all are finished.
Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with a little salt flakes.
Bake at 190°C for about 25 minutes, until golden and crispy.
Cool if you can wait that long.
