DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line several baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, beat together the egg and water to make an egg wash; set aside.
  • In another bowl, toss together the parmesan and blue cheeses; set aside.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each puff pastry sheet into a 14-by-10-inch rectangle.
  • Brush both of the pastry sheets to the edges with the egg wash and sprinkle with paprika.
  • Sprinkle the cheese mixture over one of the pastry sheets and top with the other pastry sheet, egg wash side down.
  • Roll out the pastry with a rolling pin to flatten slightly.
  • Cut the pastry in half horizontally with a sharp knife and then lengthwise into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
  • Carefully pick up a stick and, with both hands, twist to form a spiral (left hand counter-clockwise, right hand clockwise).
  • Arrange cheese straws about 1 1/2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets, pressing ends onto the sheets.
  • Bake until golden and puffed, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and cool before removing to a serving dish.
