IMG 3864.jpg


1 box puff pastry, thawed (two rolls of pastry dough)

2 beaten egg whites 

2 Tbsp black sesame seeds

2 Tbsp white sesame seeds

1 tsp granulated garlic

½ cup Gruyere cheese, grated

1 Tbsp flakey salt (Maldon or other)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Roll out both rolls of puff pastry and flatten slightly with a rolling pin.

Place puff pastry on the baking sheets and prick each one several times with a fork.

Brush both with egg whites and sprinkle with equal amounts of seeds, garlic and top with cheese.

Bake until puffed and slightly browned.

It REALLY puffs so let it cool a few minutes before cutting.

Cut into 1-inch squares (bite size) with a sharp knife or pizza cutter. 

Sprinkle with salt.
