Frozen puff pastry makes it easy to create these flaky, cheese-flecked “breadsticks.”
Updated May 5, 2005

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. 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.
