Makes: 1 servings adjust

Directions

Ingredients

  • Unsalted Butter, for greasing baking sheets

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F with rack in middle. Grease 2 baking sheets.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet Frozen Puff Pastry, half a 17.3 oz package, thawed
  • 1 large Egg, lightly beaten

Step 2

On a lightly floured work surface, roll out pastry into a 14- by 12-inch rectangle and brush with some egg wash. Cut pastry in half crosswise, forming two 12- by 7-inch rectangles.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces Asiago Cheese, finely shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 4 slices Prosciutto, very thinly sliced (Prosciutto di Parma or Prosciutto San Daniele), 2 oz
  • Coarse Sea Salt

Step 3

Sprinkle cheese over 1 rectangle and top with prosciutto, then top with second rectangle, egg-wash side down. Gently roll out pastry slightly so that layers adhere and any air pockets are forced out (rectangle should be about 12 1/2 by 7 1/2 inches). Brush with some remaining egg wash and lightly sprinkle with salt.
 

Step 4

Using a sharp knife, trim ends of rectangle to make even, then cut pastry into strips about 7 1/2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Twist strips and arrange on baking sheets, about 1 inch apart, pressing ends onto sheet to keep strips twisted.
 

Step 5

Bake until golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
