Flaky, crispy--absolutely scrummy!

Top Review by Chef floWer

These are very easy to make. My first batch was burnt as I set my timer for 15 minutes and the oven to 220oC and walked away. The next batch I had the oven at 180oC and cooked them at 15 mins and they were perfect. I didn't change a thing but these are very versatile, you can add your favourite herbs and spices to make them more personalised. The second batch I didn't even twist them and left them as cheese sticks. Thank you Aaliyah's mum

  1. Preheat oven to gas mark 7/425°F/220°C.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl along with dried chili flakes and dried oregano.
  3. Rub in the butter and grated cheese till the mixture is crumbly.
  4. Add in cold water and mix lightly until mixture holds together and leaves side of the bowl clean.
  5. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough to a 10x10 inches square.
  6. Now cut the square in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise into strips about 1/2 inch wide.
  7. Carefully lift each strip and twist gently and place them on a baking sheet.
  8. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for about 15 minutes, or until lightly golden browned.
  9. Remove from oven and carefully transfer cheese twists onto a wire rack to cool.
