Cheese, paprika and olive twists

cheese twists

Our friends Russel and Adam came up on the weekend for Tapas and Strictly Come Dancing. Apart from the croquetas, chorizo, patatas bravas and all that, I made these cheese twists from a sheet of ready-rolled puff-pastry I had in the fridge. Took about five minutes to prepare and then about 20 to bake. Really easy and a tasty snack to have with some wine and olives.

Ingredients
1 sheet of ready-rolled puff-pastry
A handful of slice olives
A big sprinkling of smoked paprika
A load of grated Parmesan
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

Method
Dust some flour on the bench and lay the pastry sheet on it. Roll it out a little thinner in each direction.
Pour over some olive oil and sprinkle the paprika and Parmesan all over. Really cover it with a load.
Scatter the olives over and press them into the pastry a little. Season carefully then fold it in half and roll it out a little more.
Cut into strips and roll up into twists by turning from opposite ends. Bake them on a tray in a 200c oven for about 20 minutes, or until golden. Leave to cool and serve.
