    The Wallaces's Note:

    Posted for ZWT6. Great way to use up puff pastry! Very basic, but can be jazzed up. See end of instructions for ideas. Note: Amounts of ingredients and therefore servings will vary depending on how much puff pastry you have, so entered 4 for Zaar purposes.

      I made this quick and easy treat for my dh; because there are just two of us at home, I used 1/2 of 1 sheet and got a yeild of 8 straws. They were perfect, golden, puffy and full of flavor. I used coarse sea salt, fresh ground black pepper and parmigana good. Thank you for sharing your recipe, which we will enjoy again.

      I, like another reviewer, used 1/2 of a package of pre-made puff pastry. My portion was 9 X 9, so my 'stems' were 9 inches; I did slice in 3/4 inch slices, and my yield was 13. I sprinkled with grated parmigiano-reggiano, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. They baked for 18 minutes, and were done and lovely! They would be awesome as nibbles, with cocktails! Thanks for sharing, The Wallaces!

      What could be easier? I used a half box of puff pastry and ended up with 6 nice sized twists. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT6~ Germany.
