• 375g lighter ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 1 medium free-range egg, beaten
  • 100g mature cheddar cheese


  1. 1

    Unroll the pastry and brush with beaten egg. Scatter over the cheese and pat down slightly. Cut the pastry into 10 strips and chill for 30 minutes.

  2. 2

    Preheat the oven to 220ºC/fan 200ºC/gas mark 7. Take a chilled strip and roll in opposite directions to create a twist. Gently roll to create a long straw. Cut in half and transfer to a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 200ºC/fan 180º C/gas mark 6 and bake for a further 5-10 minutes until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
