  • Serves: 10



  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets(1 sheet), thawed
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.

Sprinkle half the garlic, parsley and cheese on the bottom half of the pastry sheet.  Fold the pastry in half over the garlic mixture.  Brush the pastry with the egg mixture.  Sprinkle the remaining garlic, parsley and cheese on the pastry.  Roll the pastry lightly with a rolling pin.  Cut the pastry into 20 (about 1/2-inch-wide) strips.  Tie each strip into a knot.  Place the pastries onto 2 baking sheets.
