Parmesan Puff Pastry Sticks


We had folks over for dinner and I wanted something upscale to serve with my Manicotti, these were the perfect match. They are crisp and melt in your mouth!

· 1 (17.3 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
· 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
· 1 tsp dried basil
· ½ tsp garlic powder
· ¼ cup butter melted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees, lightly grease a baking sheet

On a lightly floured surface, unfold pastry sheets. Cut each sheet into 13 strips, about 3/4 by 10-inches apiece. In a shallow dish, combine cheese, basil, and garlic. Brush pastry sticks with melted butter. Roll pastry in cheese mixture, lightly coating each side. Gently twist pastry sticks, and place on a prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 12 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. I sprinkle on a bit of sea or kosher salt.
