Parmesan Twists

This is Kaitlin's specialty, Parmesan Twists. We are all very lucky that she's sharing this recipe of hers. I am real lucky she even lets me eat one of these (Ok, I did sneak and eat 2.). Yep, they are that good and worth every cent she pays for their protection. Note to self - cutoff Kaitlin's allowance.




Thaw out a sheet of puff pastry dough. Keep moist paper towels or cheese cloth on the dough while it thaws so it won't dry out. Give the pastry sheet a little roll with a rolling pin and using a pastry cutter or a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 1/2 inch thick strips.

Run each strip through and egg wash (beat one egg with a splash of water).

Then run the strip through a bowl of freshly grated Parmigiana-Reggiano cheese. Are you feeling the love?

Twist the strip and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes. These treats are so light, buttery and flaky...what' not to love.
