These crisp, melt-in-your-mouth Parmesan Puff Pastry Straws are always a hit. They are easy to make, too - get your kids to help! They will love watching them puff in the oven.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 27 minutes

Yield: Serves 8


  • 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed according to package directions
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sprinkle half of the cheese over your work surface. Roll out the puff pastry square on the cheese. Then combine remaining cheese with paprika and cornstarch and sprinkle on the pastry. Keep rolling the cheese mixture into the dough, turning a few times, until the dough is about 1/8" thick.

Using a sharp knife or a pastry cutter, cut into 1/2" strips. Then cut the strips in half so they are about 5-6" long. If they are any longer they break too easily. Then carefully place the strips on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F for 13-16 minutes until they are browned and crisp. Cool five minutes and remove carefully from baking sheets to cool completely on wire racks. Store in airtight container.
