Parmesan Stars

Now the party season is upon us, I thought these simple little cheesy bites might come in handy, found the recipe in the Daily Mail magazine.
Makes 30 -40 depending on the size of the cutter you use.
375g ready-rolled puff pastry
Flour for dusting
1 egg yolk and 1 tbsp milk, mixed
50g finely grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp chili powder
Preheat the oven to 220 c
Cut out as many stars from the pastry as possible with a small cutter, and place onto greased baking sheets.
Lightly brush surface with the egg and milk mix.
Mix together the Parmesan and chili powder, then scatter over the stars.
Bake in the oven for about 5 -8 minutes or until lightly golden and puffed up.
They are best served straight away but can be made a few days in advance and warmed in the oven when needed.
Enjoy x
