Puff Pastry Witches' Brooms

Frozen puff pastry is pretty bland on its own, but when brushed with egg and sprinkled with cheese and spices, it can be tastier than a bag of potato chips! A little twisting and trimming will result in puff pastry breadsticks that look like a gathering of witches’ brooms. Serve with a zesty dip, such as a can of drained black beans pulsed with some spicy salsa. You can vary the flavors as you like. Try Italian seasonings, or finely grated Cheddar.

      Twist the tops of each strip to make the broom handles, then use a paring knife to cut 4 or 5 strips at the bottom of each to make the broom’s bristles.
