parmesan cheese twists

I’m spending today styling the Brahmin summer catalog in Providence, so I’m typing this right before I leave for the train station.  I’m so excited for this project, and I can’t wait to show you guys all the looks we’re putting together!  Look for more behind-the-scenes images (and a video) soon!

But — not these cheese twists.  I’ve actually been meaning to make these for probably three years — mostly because of this simple equation:

Cheese + Puff Pastry = Best Combo Ever.

These are basically just buttery, parmesan-y indulgent little finger foods, and what could be better than that?  You could dust them with fresh grated pepper or smoked paprika for a little complexity, but even on their own, they’re pretty great.  And a three-ingredient recipe that makes something this impressive?  Not bad, Katy.  Not bad.


1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface, and cut it into thirds.  Brush both sides with olive oil.  Cut into strips on a diagonal.  Twist strips and place 2″ apart on a greased baking sheet, and top with parmesan cheese.  Bake 10-15 minutes or until golden.

    I’ve been following your blog for a while now (love it – your nutella cupcakes are amaaaaazing) and it’s funny you just posted this recipe – I recently started making the same thing for my husband who loves savoury snacks and they are the easiest and most tasty thing I’ve come across in a while. I make mine using grated gruyère or emmental, next time will maybe try adding olive tapenade or something else to shake it up a little…possibilities are endless!

    mmm mmm good!  These look simply delicious!

    I am not much of a baker/cook- but these are motivating.
