Cook 15 mins

This is a great way of using up leftover or offcuts of puff pastry, and it's so simple. You can substitute peanut butter for the marmite if you prefer.

Thank you for sharing this great recipe, Noo! I was the happy recipient of some marmite in one of my previous Zaar swaps & so, in that respect, this recipe was made to order for me! I did use a sharp cheddar cheese & the combo of that with the marmite was wonderful! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]

Like Pat, I used Vegemite and tasty cheese - a cheese I classify as cooking cheese. And it is very tasty as just that. Several of us enjoyed these fresh from the oven as a mid-afternoon snack. Unsophisticated everyday food at its best! Kids would LOVE these. Well, kids of all ages, I suspect! And I'll be enjoying some of the remaining ones - at room temperature - for take-to-work mid-morning snacks early in the week, if there are any left. Great recipe, Noo! Thank you for sharing it. Made for 1-2-3-4 Hit Wonders!

Took these to the DS's adult music recreation group were they were devoured. I used vegemite and tasty cheddar and baked at 200C fan forced oven for 15 minutes. Also our pastry sheets come prerolled about 10" x 10", so used 2 sheets and up the cheese to 3 ounces and got 12 per sheet, a total of 24. Thank you Noo, made for Newest ZAAR Stars Tag.
