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.

INGREDIENTS

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

DIRECTIONS

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!
