  • 1 box frozen puff pastry sheets thawed (2 sheets)
  • String Cheese any flavor; I used Colby and/or shredded cheese (any flavor; I used cheddar)


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two cookie sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
  • Unwrap puff pastry and cut each sheet into 9 squares.
  • If using string cheese, slice the cheese into 3-4 pieces.
  • Place a bit of string cheese or sliced cheese in the center of each square of pastry. Wet your finger and brush 2 adjoining edges of each square with water. Fold over into a triangle and press to seal. Press lightly with the tines of a fork to make sure they're sealed and prevent leakage during baking.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown and pastry is cooked through.
  • Serve plain or with dipping sauces such as salsa, guacamole, barbecue sauce, or marinara.



  • Try my Basic Egg Wash Recipe to make them nice and golden.
  • Make sure your puff pastry is thawed according to the package directions.
  • I like using a pizza cutter to slice my squares evenly!
  • Seal the edges with water and a fork very well otherwise it’ll spill out any gaps as the cheese melts.
  • Serve with your favorite dips to pump up the flavor! I love dipping these in salsa.
