Ready In:
16 twists




  • Lay 2 sheets of thawed puff pastry on an even work surface. Brush each sheet with beaten egg, then sprinkle 2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan and 1/3 cup chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as flat-leaf parsley, chives, basil and mint.
  • Top each sheet of pastry with another sheet, gently pressing down. Using a small sharp knife, cut pastry into 2cm-wide strips.
  • Using both hands, shape each strip into a twist. For better effect, the twists should be not too perfect and slightly loose, so you can see the herbs. Bake in a pre-heated 210°C oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Serve with drinks or as a snack.

    Guests will love these savory nibbles. Very simple and so incredibly delicious. For US cooks, I cut my slab of stacked pastry in half first, and then into strips about 3/4 inch wide. I got 20 strips. I baked them for 18-20 minutes at 410 degrees (make sure the insides aren't doughy). Really a lovely, lovely recipe that looks sophisticated and will appeal to everyone.

    Took these to the DS's recreation group (made on the Monday and they gave them slow warm up on the Tuesday) and they were loved. I cooked them at 200 in a fan forced oven and the first batch were slightly overdone at 15 minutes but the second at 12 minutes was perfect.

I live in Keilor Downs, Victoria in Australia. I am a receptionist in Melbourne. My favorite cook books are anything Weight Watchers or Simply 2 good 2 be true also any muffin or scone cook books. I love cooking easy stuff but I love a challange ocasionaly on the weekends when i have a bit more time. My pet peeve is how much capsicum/bell peppers are in recipes now as i am elergic to them.
