When working with the puff pastry, keeping it refrigerated between steps helps to prevent the dough from spreading. |
Place puff pastry scraps in a sealable plastic bag. Refrigerate for up to 1 day, or refreeze for up to 2 weeks.|
Place pastry scraps in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking pan. Brush with lightly beaten egg; sprinkle with shredded gouda. Bake at 400˚F for 10-12 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Top salads and soups with gouda bites.
Gouda cheese originated in Holland. Made with whole milk, gouda is a great melting cheese. It has a smooth, creamy texture and buttery, slightly sweet-nutty flavor.
