Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400*F
  2. Thaw the puff pastry according to the directions on the box
  3. Gently unroll thawed puff pastry sheet and brush with melted butter
  4. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the grated Parmigiano Reggiano then with 1 tsp of the freshly ground black pepper
  5. Use your hands to press the cheese and pepper down into the dough
  6. Fold the puff pastry in half and use a rolling pin to roll into a larger square that is 1/8 inch in thickness
  7. Use a knife or pizza roller to cut the dough into long strips that are about 1 inch wide 
  8. Twist each side of the strip to create an even spiral and place on a sheet pan lined with garment paper or a silpat. Press each end of the strip down into the paper to make sure it does not unravel. Repeat with remaining straps and place them a couple inches apart on the tray.
  9. Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes
  10. Mix the egg with a couple tablespoons of water and whisk together. 
  11. Brush each strip with egg wash, then sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and remaining 1 tsp black pepper. 
  12. Bake for 10-15 minutes until puffed and golden brown. 
  13. Enjoy!
