Baked cheese pastry!

There is nothing better than serving finger food snacks during a get-together or a gathering. While you do want something satisfying that your guests can enjoy, you don’t want to make anything too difficult to hold and eat while they’re chatting, and at the same time, you don’t want them worrying about the calories!

These cheese pastry can go fast, so plan on making a lot of them 🙂

There are probably many cheeses you could use with this recipe but my husband and I prefer the Halloumi  cheese for this kind of snack, it’s light and delicioouuusss!

What you will need:

  • Puff Pastry ( ready in any supermarket)
  • 1 cup grated Halloumi cheese
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint or parsley
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary

What you will need to to:

  • Preheat oven to 200˚C (400°F)
  • Put the cheese, mint and rosemary in a bowl and mix well
  • Roll out a sheet of puff pastry until it becomes thin
  • Using a knife, cut out dough into a square
  • Add filling along bottom side of the dough, pick the top side and wrap.
  • Seal the seams with a fork for a nice design 🙂
  • Put in oven for 10 to 12 minutes until top is brownish

For extra flavor, brush oil or butter on top of the pastry

    I discovered halloumi a few years ago as I moved to Cyprus, never heard of it before. But straight away I fell in love with that delicious cheese that is so versatile and gives its special note to so many dishes. Very often we try new halloumi recipes and there is not one week since then, that we won’t have at least one meal with halloumi, not to speak about BBQs, where having halloumi is a must.
    Thank you for sharing this nice recipe, I will give it surely a try.
