  5. Take puff pastry sheet and place it on a floured surface, flatten it a little bit using a rolling-pin

  7. After 30 mins, take the rolled log and cut it into 1/2 to 1 inch equal pieces
  8. Place the pieces in the basket of the air fryer and brush them with some oil. Cook on 400 F for 10 mins or until golden and crisp, flip them after 7 mins

Tip: You can also bake these instead of air-frying. To bake pre-heat the oven to 425 F or 220 C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place the pieces on the baking tray and brush them with some oil. Bake for 20 mins or until golden-brown, flip them after 12 mins.
