2 tablespoons 30mlGrated Cheddar cheese

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.

Divide the pastry into 3 equal portions. Roll out one portion to rectangle 1/8-inch thick and 10 inches in length. Sprinkle the Gruyere evenly over the surface and dust very lightly with cayenne. Use the palms of your hand or a rolling pin to firmly press the cheese into the dough. Cut the dough into 1/2-inch wide strips, twist them, and arrange them on a baking sheet. Continue with the remaining pastry, sprinkling Cheddar cheese on one batch and Parmesan and prosciutto, if using on the other. Chill for at least 30 minutes before baking.
