And what did I bake with the homemade puff pastry?
Delicious Cheese and Herb swirls, made after a family recipe of my boyfriends family. The boyfriend loves them and eat the first batch faster then I could take a picture. For the second batch I forbid him to test them before I photograph the swirls – afterwards the swirls were nibbled away fastly.
They are really delicious and are easy to vary, depending what cheese or herbs are used. At the moment, during spring time, I like to use fresh springs of clives, wild garlic, parsley and garden burnet. In the winter I prefer using frozen herbs, when there are no fresh herbs available.
And of course you can used bough puff pastry, then the swirls a made quite quickly. Its definitely a favourite recipe.
Cheese and Herb swirls
- 300g fresh puff pastry (bought or homemade)
- 250g cheese (like Cheddar or Gouda )
- 200g Sour cream

Cut the puff pastry in stripes of 12,5 x 45 cm.
Grind the cheese, dice onion and herbs and mix evenly with sour cream. Spread the filling on the puff pastry stripes and roll them to two logs, beginning with the long side. Cut into slices of 1 cm each, place them on paper lined baking tray.
