Garlic Straws Recipe

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425F. Roll out the puff pastry on a floured board into a rectangle, as thinly as possible. Stir the garlic juice into most of the milk and brush the pastry with half of it. Mix the paprika and Parmesan, and season with a little salt and cayenne. Sprinkle half of it over one half of the pastry. Fold the pastry and roll out as thinly as possible.

Step 2

Repeat with the remaining garlic milk and Parmesan mixture and roll out to a rectangle not more than 1/4 inch thick. Brush with milk and cut into strips about 1/2 inch wide and 6 inches long.

Step 3

Arrange the straws, at least an inch apart, on greased baking sheets and bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until well-risen and golden brown. Serve warm, piled onto each other, log cabin style.
