cup sesame seeds
¾ cup Parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
or to taste
teaspoon chili powder
½ tablespoons thyme
freshly chopped, or 1/4 teaspoon dried
¼ teaspoon salt
2 sheets puff pastry
18 ounces, thawed
1 large eggs
beaten with a few drops water and a pinch of salt


undefined Preheat the oven to 425℉ (220℃) F.

In a small bowl, mix well the sesame seeds, Parmesan cheese, cayenne pepper, chili powder, thyme, and ¼ teaspoon salt.

Roll one of the pastry sheets to a 10x14-inch rectangular shape on a lightly floured surface.

Brush egg wash evenly on the sheets, and cut in half lengthwise to make two 5x14-inch strips.

Spread half of the cheese filling evenly over one strip and lay the second strip on top, egg wash side down.

Press the strips together with the rolling pin to fuse the two sheets. Cut the strip crosswise into 28 strips and ½ inch wide.

Lift a strip, twist it three times, and lay it on an ungreased baking sheet, pressing each end to keep the twists from unwinding during baking. Repeat with the second puff pastry sheet and the remaining filling.

Bake the twists until they're puffed, light brown, and dry looking throughout, about 12 minutes. Bite one for testing, make sure it isn't doughy in the center. Watch carefully, do not burn.

Cool them on a wire rack and serve immediately once they are cool enough to handle. Try to serve them within 2 hours. undefined

This is another puff pastry recipe we made during last week, these twists were delicious and addictive, we made our own puff pastry, so make sure to keep your working surface cold, keep the butter stay well in the pastry, if the working surface is too warm, the puff pastry would become too sticky, this is the only thing that need to pay attention, other steps are very simple and easy to follow.
