My eldest loves it when I make cheesy pastry twists, and they are great for adding to his lunch box too, if they last long enough that is. They are usually gone pretty quick when I make them.
Cheddar and Marmite Twists
Makes about 10 twists (depending on pastry sheet size)
- 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry (thawed at room temp)
- marmite (or vegemite)
- grated good quality mature cheddar
- 1 egg, beaten
Place the pastry on a floured surface and carefully unfold (if yours is not a ready sheet, then you will need to roll it out with a rolling pin until it is about 1/8″ inch thick.
Slice the pastry sheet in half and then slice each half into 5 equal sized strips (so you have 10 strips).
Add a few spoonfuls of marmite to a bowl and pour in a little bit of boiling hot water, so that you have a runny paste.
Using a pastry brush, brush this onto the pastry and then sprinkle with your grated cheddar.
Holding each end of the strips, carefully twist each piece, until you have 10 twists.
Place the strips on a tray lined with baking paper and place the baking tray in the fridge for about 10 mins, just to firm up the pastry.
Remove from fridge and brush each strip with the beaten egg.
Place in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f (gas mark 6) and bake until golden.
