Yield: makes about 24 14" straws

Ingredients

  • 34 cup grated parmigiano-reggiano
  • 1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Dust work surface with 14 cup of the parmigiano-reggiano. Lay unfolded sheet of puff pastry on top of cheese, then sprinkle with 14 cup more grated cheese. Gently roll dough out with a rolling pin, pressing cheese into dough, to a thickness of about 18". Dust with more cheese as needed.
  2. Cut pastry into long 12"-wide strips. Give each strip several twists, then lay 12" apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until golden, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then remove from paper and serve.
