This is a really great little way to use up Rough Puff Pastry offcuts, after all it would be sacrilegious to throw away that lovely buttery stuff!

Simple squash together your offcuts and roll out to just under 1/4 inch / 1/2 cm. Grate over some lovely strong cheddar or gruyere cheese and press gently into the pastry.

Use a pizza cutter or sharp un-serrated knife to slice the pastry into strips about a 1 inch / 2 1/2 cm wide, then twist them so that they do a full twist about 3 or 4 times. Transfer to a greased baking tray and pop in the oven for about 15 mins until golden and the cheese is melted and toasty brown.

These are a great thrifty little snack to go with drinks.
