  • Easy
  • 15 minutes
  • 15–20 minutes


  • 2 x 250 g sheets Woolworths frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 250 g smooth cream cheese
  • 100 g Woolworths sliced biltong, chopped
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • fresh thyme, to garnish

Cooking Instructions

1 Preheat the oven to 180°C. Roll out the pastry slightly thinner with a dusting of flour.

2 Heat the cream cheese in the microwave to make it easy to spread. Spread a thin layer all over each sheet of pastry.

3 Cut the pastry into even-sized strips, sprinkle over the chopped biltong and gently pat into pastry.

4 Twist the strips and chill for 15 minutes to cool completely. Brush with egg and season, then bake for 15–20 minutes, until puffed and golden.
