These are cheese straws all grown up. The buttery, salty, crunchy, and nutty twists are fun to make (for kids and adults alike) and a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Frozen puff pastry is your BFF here as a time saver for making quick appetizers for an impromptu party—or having a snack-y dinner on a random Wednesday night. You could also host a little aperitivo hour with Sausage & Cheese-Stuffed Fried Olives, Lemon & Onion Crostini, and an Aperol Spritz!
1 sheet puff pastry(½ of 17.3-ounce frozen package), thawed
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
⅛ teaspoon cayenne
4 slices thinly shaved prosciutto
+ All-purpose flour, for rolling
Pucker up to this simple yet delightful Italian bite.
A poppable one-bite appetizer so full of flavor that it can convert olive haters…
Puttin’ on the spritz! This slightly bitter, fizzy Italian drink will wake up your palate as a perfect pre-dinner cocktail.
