Twisted Cheese and Marmite Straws
ready in 45 min.
- 16 ozs Puff pastry
- all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsps Marmite
- 2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
- paprika (optional)
Heat the oven to 220°C (200° fan) 425°F gas 7. Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
Divide the block of puff pastry into 4 even sized portions. Use 1 portion at a time (keep the rest in the refrigerator).
Sprinkle a work surface lightly with flour. Roll out a portion of the pastry to a rectangle measuring about 30cm x 20cm|12" x 8".
Spread the pastry with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the Marmite and then sprinkle with 1/4 of the grated cheese. Sprinkle lightly with paprika, if using.
Fold the pastry over lengthways and press firmly together. Cut into 8 1cm|1/2" wide strips, then cut each strip in half and twist.
Repeat with the remaining portions of pastry.
Place on the baking trays and chill for 10 minutes before cooking.
Bake for 7-10 minutes, until golden brown and puffed up and the cheese has melted. Leave to cool on the baking trays.
