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.
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
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.
