Really Easy Cheesy Twists

I recently made some cheesy twists from some leftover pastry and they were a massive winner in the Modern Mummy household so I thought I would share the recipe with you.

I had been trying to impress Himself with my housewifey pie making skills and had made the pastry from scratch but I would recommend using ready made puff pastry if you've not got any leftover homemade stuff as making it takes forever and defeats the object of a quick and easy lunch or snack! (You can find it in the refrigerator aisle at the supermarket, usually next to the butters and lards).

1x roll Jus Rol puff pastry
Butter for greasing baking tray
Flour for dusting surfaces
Lots and lots of cheddar cheese, grated

Roll the pastry out on a floured surface so that it is about a quarter of an inch thick and divide into sections approximately 3 inches wide and 6 inches long. Cut each piece into three 1 inch strips lengthways and cover each strip with grated cheese. Plait the three strips, place the plaited cheesy pastry onto a very well greased baking tray and sprinkle with more grated cheese.

Put into a pre-heated oven at Gas Mark 6 and leave for 15-20 minutes (until suitably puffy and cheesy and golden brown).

Serve warm with a nice cup of tea (if its before midday) or a glass of Chianti (if its after)!
