Half - time snack

Just in-case you missed it - the World Cup is on! 
That means dinner in front of the TV and lots of snacks.
Here's a tasty, treat that is perfect for those half-time munchies.

Savoury Cheese Whirls.

Puff pastry sheet.
approx 125g grated cheese
1 beaten egg, to glaze

Preheat oven to 200C Fan
Unroll the pastry sheet. Use a palette knife to spread the Marmite thinly over the pastry.
As you work it, and it warms up, it will spread more easily.
I made a couple of batches of these whirls. For the first one I used about 2tsps of Marmite which gave a good, strong flavour, so use less if you want a more subtle taste.
Sprinkle over the grated cheese.
Roll the pastry up quite tightly, along the long edge.  Brush with the beaten egg.
Cut into thick slices and place on greaseproof paper, on a baking tray.
Bake for 12 - 15 mins until well risen and golden.
