It’s not a party without cheese straws, and we made these extra special for the occasion with additions such as nutty Manchego cheese and salty prosciutto.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

Unfold 1 sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured work surface, and roll out to a 10- x 16-inch rectangle. Brush pastry surface edge to edge with a small amount of beaten egg. Sprinkle evenly with 3/4 cup of the shredded Manchego cheese. Lay half of the prosciutto slices across lower half of pastry (along 10-inch side), overlapping slices slightly. Fold top portion of pastry over prosciutto with ends of pastry meeting to form an 8- x 10-inch rectangle. Repeat with second puff pastry sheet.

Step 3

Cut each rectangle into 20 (1/2- x 8-inch) strips. Working with 1 strip at a time, use both hands to twist and form a spiral stick. Place on prepared baking sheets, pressing ends onto parchment to adhere. Brush with remaining egg wash; sprinkle with thyme.

Step 4

Bake in preheated oven until cheese straws are puffed and golden brown, 15 to 17 minutes.
