Cheese twists may be old school, but they’re a classic and that’s because they are delicious.
3 sheets of frozen puff pastry
1 cup of strong flavoured cheese such as cheddar, Gruyere or emmenthal, grated
salt and pepper
- Lay out your pieces of pastry on the counter.
- Beat the egg and brush each piece of pastry lightly with the egg.
- Sprinkle the grated cheese over each sheet, also sprinkle a pinch of salt over each and some cracked black pepper. Using a rolling pin, gently press the cheese into the pastry. Cut each sheet into 10 strips. Twist each strip a couple of times before placing on the lined baking sheet. You can freeze these at this point. Lay them on a flat tray that fits in your freezer. Once frozen, you can put them in zip lock bags or containers and keep them in the freezer until needed.
- Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celcius and line a baking sheet with paper or a silicon mat. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden, puffed and crisp. Turn and bake for a couple more minutes until coloured on the other side.
