  • Author: Girl Versus Dough
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 24 straws 1x


  • 1 sheet puff pastry (from 17.3 oz package), thawed
  • 1/2 cup shredded Roth Grand Cru Reserve cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano or Italian blend seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water (for egg wash)


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In small bowl, combine shredded cheese, dried oregano and garlic powder.
  2. On lightly floured surface, roll out thawed puff pastry dough to 14-by-12-inch rectangle. Use sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut dough into two 12-by-7-inch rectangles. Brush each rectangle with egg wash.
  3. On one rectangle, sprinkle cheese mixture. Place second rectangle egg wash-side down on top of cheese mixture; firmly press rectangles together and pinch seams to seal. Brush top with egg wash.
  4. Use sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut dough crosswise into 24 1/2-inch strips. Twist each strip and place on ungreased baking sheet(s) 1 inch apart, pressing edges to baking sheet to keep in place.
  5. Bake 10 to 13 minutes until cheese straws are puffed and golden. Transfer to cooling rack to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
