Parmesan Cheese Straws

  • Prep Time: 20 Minutes (Total Time 32 Minutes)
  • Serving Size: 9
  • 1 Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Water
  • 1 Frozen Puff Pastry Sheet, Thawed (Half Of 17.25 Ounces Package)
  • 1/2 cup KRAFT 100 Percent Grated Parmesan Cheese, Divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Red Pepper (cayenne), Divided
  • PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Beat egg and water with wire whisk until well blended; set aside. Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface. Roll into 14x10-inch rectangle; cut in half lengthwise. Brush both pastry halves lightly with some of the egg mixture. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the cheese and 1/4 tsp. of the pepper evenly over one of the pastry pieces; cover with remaining pastry piece, egg-side down. Roll gently with rolling pin to seal two pastry pieces together.

    CUT crosswise into 18 (3/4-inch-wide) strips. Twist each strip, then place, 2 inches apart, on greased baking sheets, pressing down ends of pastry strips to baking sheet to secure. Brush with remaining egg mixture; sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 cup cheese and remaining 1/4 tsp. pepper.

    BAKE 10 to 12 min. or until golden brown. Serve warm or cooled to room temperature.
