So easy and so good. I actually found this recipe originally through Whole Foods. They had me roll out the puffy pastry then press in the blue cheese and walnuts and then fold over but this seems much easier. I don't think they really tasted super blue cheesy so I would probably add more next time and now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I forgot to add black pepper. Oh well. My family still devoured them. Thanks for posting!

  2. lightly floured surface. Sprinkle evenly with bleu cheese, walnuts, salt
  3. and pepper. Place remaining pastry on top. Using a floured rolling pin,
  4. press the sheets together and roll into a 10 inch square.
  5. Using a sharp knife, cut the square into 12 equal strips, then cut those strips in half. You will have 24 - 5 inch strips.
  6. Gently hold each strip at the end and twist. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden brown; about 10 minutes.
  7. To freeze: Place the baking sheet with the twists on it in the freezer for at least one hour. When twists are frozen, store in an airtight container, separating layers with parchment or wax paper, for up to three months. Add 2 to 3 minutes to the cooking time for frozen twists.
