Make these easy cheese and sesame seed straws, then check out our cheese straws and Parmesan and anchovy straws recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 sheets ready-rolled puff pastry, about 425g
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 80g mature cheddar, finely grated
  • 2 tbsp black sesame seeds

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7 and line a baking tray with baking paper. Lay out 1 of the sheets of puff pastry and brush some of the beaten egg over the surface. Now scatter over the grated cheddar and season with pepper. Lay the other sheet of pastry on top and firmly press all over to seal. Brush the top of the pastry with more egg, and scatter over the sesame seeds.

  • STEP 2

    Slice the pastry into thumb-width lengths, and twist like a rope. Lay on the baking tray, pressing down each end (you might have to cook in two batches). Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp, golden and firm to the touch.
