Puff Pastry Sticks Two Ways – Sweet and Savory

Puff Pastry Sticks Two Ways   Sweet and Savory // wishfulchef.comI’ve never cooked much with puff pastry until recently. My vegetable pot pies really won me over. Since they were such a success, I’ve been experimenting with store-bought puff pastry more and decided to make a quick sweet and savory snack.

I didn’t specify amounts in my two recipes and just sprinkled the puff pastry strips with different herbs and spices. For the sweet puff pastry sticks I used cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla sugar which was perfect for an afternoon coffee break. For the savory, I used grated emmentaler cheese leftover from my recent spaetzle recipe. These pastry sticks are so quick and easy to make, great for entertaining a crowd if you’re short on time.
