3 sheets frozen ready-rolled puff pastry, partially thawed
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons milk
120g Colby cheese, coarsely grated
60g Colby cheese, finely grated
Preheat oven to 220°C. Grease and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Cut an 8cm-wide strip from 1 pastry sheet. Repeat with another pastry sheet. Cover strips and uncut pastry sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Whisk egg yolk and milk together in a small bowl. Brush 1 cut pastry sheet with egg mixture. Top with coarsely-grated cheese. Cover with remaining cut pastry sheet. Press down firmly to join. Cut pastry into twelve 2cm-wide strips. Twist strips and place, 3cm apart, on prepared trays. Brush with egg mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Using a 5cm star cutter, cut 24 stars from reserved pastry. Brush 12 stars with egg mixture. Top with finely-grated cheese. Sandwich together with remaining 12 stars, pressing down firmly to join. Brush both sides of stars with egg mixture. Attach stars to alternating ends of pastry twists (see note).
Bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until golden and puffed. Serve.
