Introduction: Cheese Whorls
My sister and kids are here with me over the weekend.And here is what we tried out together.
Cheese whorls is a quick and easy salty snack /savoury which you can do it no time,as long as you have the puff pastry ready in hand.
Since Puff pastry is very cheap in Germany,I always buy them and freeze it.It cost only 69€ cents for 225gram sheet.
No hassle in rolling them over and over again.
This is very tasty when you serve it hot and with different types of creams.Paprika cream,sour cream or any thing of your choice.
Even though my recipe shows salt ,I did not use it,as the cheese is already salty.
The Cheese Whorls has a nice salty taste when baked.
Cooled Cheese Whorls freeze very well.Defrost the Cheese Whorls on the baking sheet in the oven at the temperature of about 180C/350F (bottom and top heat) for about 3 minutes.
