Cheese and paprika puffs

Super easy puff pastry appetizer with cheese. Fast finger food for parties or for appetizers.


  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 3 tbsp (or more) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tbsp (or more) grated Pecorino cheese
  • 1 tsp smoked or sweet paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water
  • Instructions below.


Roll out the puff pastry into a rectangle (me 17 x 26 cm). Brush it with egg wash (1 egg whisked with 1 tablespoon of water). Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, grated pecorino cheese and a teaspoon of smoked or sweet paprika.

Fold the rectangle in half.  Using a wheel cutter or a sharp knife cut out 1.5 – 2 cm wide strips. Pick up one at a time by holding the ends and twist multiple times in opposite directions to create the spirals.

Arrange on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in a preheated static oven at 200 °C for 8 – 10 minutes.
