These batons — a zippy rework of the cheese stick — are a go-to hors d’oeuvre. Baked until golden, these snacks have Dijon mustard folded into the pastry. Thank Dorie Greenspan as you enjoy a few with a cocktail on hand.

Ingredients

  • Flour for dusting

  • 2

    sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed in the refrigerator

  • ½

    cup Dijon mustard

  • 1

    egg

  • Poppy seeds or sesame seeds, for sprinkling optional

    Preparation

    1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or baking mats.
    2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one sheet of pastry into a rectangle, about 12 by 16 inches. Turn so that a short side is facing you. Spread half of the mustard over the lower half of the rectangle, leaving a 1/8-inch margin around the edges. Fold the top half over the lower half. Using the tip of a sharp knife and a straight edge (such as a clean ruler), cut it into 1-inch-wide strips from top to bottom. Transfer to prepared baking sheets, leaving a bit of space between batons, and refrigerate until ready to bake. Repeat with remaining pastry and mustard.
    3. Beat the egg with a splash of cold water, and brush mixture lightly onto batons. Sprinkle with poppy or sesame seeds, if using. Bake about 15 minutes, rotating pans after 8 minutes, until puffed and golden brown. Let rest a few minutes before serving.
