A tasty appetizer,
SAVORY ALMOND AND CHEESE STRAWS
1 lb. puff pastry dough
1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water
¾ cup grated dry cheese, like Parmesan or aged Gouda
¾ cup almonds, chopped
Flour for dusting
Thaw pastry overnight in refrigerator or 40 minutes at room temperature. Unfold pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. With the shorter side facing you, roll out each sheet to 12 by 12 inches. Cut each sheet in half, lengthwise.
Brush dough with egg mix and sprinkle with an even coating of cheese and almonds. With rolling pin, lightly press the mixture into the dough. Cut each half crosswise into ¾-inch strips. Place on parchment lined baking sheets and refrigerate for 30 minutes before baking.
Bake at 400 F for 9 to 10 minutes, or until light brown and crisp. Makes about 96 straws.
Let me know how they came out. Mine were yummy!
