Cheesy Papillons

I love these giant butterflies of crispy, salty, cheesy puff pastry. I just press sea salt, Gruyère, and piment d'Espelette onto store-bought puff pastry, slice it into ribbons, then twist the ribbons into bowties. Out they come, huge, puffed up proudly with steam, and coated in a crunchy layer of gratinated cheese. Serve them in baskets for dinner instead of bread.
