Elki Olive Tapenade Cheese Straws


Whether for a simple snack or an elegant dinner party, these savory olive cheese straws will surely be a winner

 Yield: 12- 15 straws

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 17 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


1 sheet puff pastry

1 large egg

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/3 cup grated aged cheddar cheese

1 cup Elki Olive Tapenade

1 tablespoon fresh thyme


Defrost the puff pastry according to the package directions.  On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough until it is about 1/16 inch thick. The size of the pastry will depend on the brand you use, but you will likely have a rectangle about 12×30 inches.

Whisk together the egg with about 1 teaspoon of water and lightly brush onto the pastry.

On one half of the dough, working cross-wise, sprinkle the parmesan, cheddar, olive tapenade and thyme. Gently fold over the other half of the dough and lightly press with the rolling pin. Using a floured pizza cutter or knife, cut the edges so you have an even rectangle. Cut even strips and place on a parchment or Silpat-lined baking sheet, twisting if you wish.

Refrigerate the dough while you preheat the oven to 375° F.

Bake for about 15 minutes, then gently turn the straws over, and bake for 1-2 minutes more. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Enjoy warm or at room temperature. Once cooled, the straws may be stored in a tightly sealed container for up to 3 days.
