Crunchy Cheese Sticks

A cheesy, crunchy appetizing snack!

1 pound of frozen puff pastry
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons thyme and oregano (dried)
black pepper (freshly ground)
2 eggs (beaten)

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees farenheit. Add herbs and ground pepper to cheese, combining well. Beat the eggs in a pie plate or baking dish large enough to dredge the sheets of puff pastry. Immerse both sides of the defrosted dough in the beaten eggs and dredge gingerly in the herb-cheese mixture. Place the seasoned dough on wax paper. Using a sharp knife or a pastry wheel, cut dough into one inch wide strips. Twist strips into a spiral shape and place one inch apart on a baking sheet covered in foil. Bake for fifteen minutes, then remove carefully from the sheet. These are best served fresh but can be kept for up to five days in a tighly sealed container.
