Countdown to Christmas #6: Cheese Straws

From now until December 24, we’ll be counting down the days until Christmas by sharing a special series of sweet treats and savory snacks from the Coho Restaurant kitchen. Let us know what’s cooking in yours this holiday season!

This is one of those recipes that doesn’t really feel like a recipe, but more of a reminder. If you are short on time but looking to impress your guests, the puff pastry cheese straw is here for you.

Cheese Straws

1 package puff pastry, thawed (or a batch of your favorite homemade recipe)
garlic powder
finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 large egg + 1 T milk for egg wash

Line a baking sheet with parchment.

Slice the pastry to your desired width and length (1″ by 10″ is a good starting place, just make sure they will fit on your baking sheet). Brush with the egg wash and sprinkle with garlic powder and Parmesan cheese to taste. Twist and arrange on the baking sheets, about an inch apart. Twists can be stored for up to an hour in the refrigerator at this point.

Bake 15-25 minutes, until puffed and golden. Cool until firm. Serve warm or at room temperature.
