Carefully spread the cheese mixture over half the pastry, then fold the other half of the pastry over the cheese mixture, pressing down gently to encase the cheese filling.
Cut across the short side of pastry in 5mm thick strips, then, holding each end, twist each strip to create a spiral. Place pastry spirals on prepared baking trays 3cm apart.
