Cheese Straw Twists

Frozen puff pastry makes it easy to create these flaky, cheese-flecked “breadsticks.”

Prep Time



Total Time






cup grated Parmesan cheese
teaspoon paprika
package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
egg, slightly beaten
  1. Heat oven to 425ºF. Cover 2 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper or heavy brown paper.
  2. Mix cheese and paprika. Roll 1 sheet of pastry into 12x10 inch rectangle on lightly floured surface with floured cloth-covered rolling pin.
  3. Brush egg over pastry. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of the cheese mixture. Press cheese mixture gently into pastry. Turn pastry over. Repeat brushing with egg and sprinkling with cheese mixture.
  4. Fold pastry lengthwise in half. Cut pastry crosswise into 1/2-inch strips. Unfold strips and roll each end in opposite directions to twist. Place twists on cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Repeat with remaining sheet of pastry, egg and cheese mixture. Serve warm or cool.
