We had pizza for dinner tonight.
And I wanted some breadsticks to go along with it.
Softened butter, 1 tablespoon
Shredded Parmesan cheese
Freshly ground black pepper
1 egg, for an egg wash
I took some puff pastry out of the freezer and left in on the counter to thaw for a few hours.
I pre-heated my oven to 425 degrees.
I lightly floured a cutting board.
I lightly floured a rolling pin.
I rolled out the puff pastry until it covered my entire cutting board.
I then took some softened butter (which is always out on my kitchen counter) and, using my fingers, spread a thin layer over the rolled out puff pastry.
I then grated some Parmesan cheese onto the dough.
Then sprinkled on some kosher salt and black pepper.
I then cut the dough into 8 strips.
Fold each strip over, encasing all of the cheesy, buttery goodness.
Transfer to a parchment (or Silpat!) lined baking sheet.
Crack 1 egg and add a teaspoon of water.
Lightly beat and brush onto breadsticks.
Grate more Parmesan cheese over them.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Look at these!
Serve with that pizza you picked up from your local wherever (my hubs got this cheesy beauty from Casey's General Store) and get some marinara sauce from the fridge or pantry to dip these beautiful breadsticks in!
