Cheese Straws With Tamari Roasted Almonds

  • Steps
  • Ingredients


Cheese Straws

  • Preheat oven to 200C fan-forced.
  • Put the egg and egg yolk in a small bowl and whisk with a fork.
  • Put the parmesan, mustard powder, salt, and paprika in another small bowl.
  • Put the pastry sheets on a bench, brush with egg wash. Sprinkle half of each with cheese mixture. Fold over pastry to make a rectangle; press to seal. With short side facing you, cut dough crosswise into 2cm strips.
  • Place strips, among 2 baking paper-lined oven trays; twist strips, pressing down on ends to stick them to baking paper.
  • Bake for 8-10 mins or until cheese straws are puffed and golden, rotating trays halfway through.

Tamari Roasted Almonds

  • Preheat oven to 180C fan-forced. Spread almonds in a single layer on an oven tray, and bake until lightly toasted and fragrant, 5-6 mins.
  • In a medium bowl, combine tamari and maple syrup. Add almonds, and toss until thoroughly coated. Spray the oven tray with oil and spread almonds evenly on tray.
  • Roast in oven until deep brown, stirring once, 15 - 17 minutes. Immediately transfer to a baking paper-lined tray, and spread out almonds, separating so nuts don't stick to each other. Let cool before serving.
