Servings and Ingredients
|½||(17.3-oz) pkg. frozen puff pastry, (one sheet), thawed|
|½ c.||Hy-Vee shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided|
|3||(1-oz) pieces Hy-Vee low-moisture part-skim mozzarella string cheese|
Things To Grab
- 2 baking sheets
- Parchment paper
- Rolling pin
Sprinkle 1/4-cup Cheddar cheese on a work surface. Place puff pastry on top of cheese. Sprinkle 1/4-cup cheese on puff pastry. Roll pastry into a 14x12-inch rectangle, pressing cheese into pastry. Cut pastry crosswise into 12 strips.
Cut string cheese lengthwise into quarters. Halve each cheese quarter lengthwise to form eight sections; 24 cheese pieces total.
Lay 2 string cheese sections in the center of each puff pastry strip. Press pastry edges together to seal around cheese. Using a rolling pin, roll and press stuffed pastry strips to flatten. Holding both ends, twist each strip in opposite direction. Place strips 1-inch apart on prepared baking sheets, pressing down ends. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and crisp. Transfer to a wire rack; cool.
