Cheese Whorls

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.

I am a day care mom who is working full time,and do not have enough time for my sewing and crafting work which I love it very much.If ever I win the laser cutter I will give up my full time job or reduce it to a couple of hours(because I do a lot of craft work  with the kids and they will be dissapointed to see me no more)and start my own business at  home as I have enough and more sewing orders which I can not do it on time.Every instructable I do with the help of the laser cutter,I will definetly post it on this great site.
