Puff Pastry Cheese Straws

These are such a delicious and simple twist to traditional bread sticks. With no kneading and no rising, they are just about as easy as they come. The cheese and paprika give it such a good flavor and the flaky texture just melts in your mouth. The entire pan was inhaled in no time at all!

    Yum! Cheese + Puff Pastry = Pure Goodness! I tried to makes cheese straws before and they didn’t turn out, but I think the recipe left out the step of folding the cheese in, rolling out, then slicing. I can’t wait to try these. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    What exactly is this “puff pastry”? I went to the store to buy some so I could make these and didn’t see it anywhere. I bought a can of pizza dough and will try it with that but would love to make the real thing sometime. Sounds fabulous!

      I wasn’t sure if this was just a New Zealand thing, but I’ve seen other American bloggers posting recipes using it, so I was assuming you could find it there. It usually comes in a flat sheet that is rolled up in the refrigerated pastry section (like by the pie crusts). I hope you find it, and I hope they carry it so that I can make these when we move back!
