- Add Parmesan cheese and puree for 15 minutes. Set aside
- Unfold 1 sheet of puff pastry and place on a lightly floured board. With a rolling pin, lightly roll dough till it’s a 13-inch square.
- Using a knife, spread the paste over the entire surface of dough.
- Fold the sides of the square toward the center so they go halfway to the middle.
- Fold them again so the 2 folds meet exactly at the middle of the dough.
- Then fold one half over the other half, as though closing a book.
- You will have 6 layers.
- Slice the dough into 3/8-inch slices and then place the slices cut side up, on baking sheets, lined with parchment paper.
- Brush each piece with the egg wash and place in oven
- Bake for 6 minutes, turn and bake for 5 minutes longer.
