The IngredientsHow to prepare the Spicy Cheese Twists?

  • One huge egg that has been pounded
  • A smidgeon of kosher salt
  • One-half teaspoon of powdered garlic
  • One-half teaspoon of cayenne
  • Six ounces of old Gouda cheese (approximately one cup), shredded in an edible blender
  • A tablespoon of leaves of thyme
  • ½ (17.3-oz) package of defrosted refrigerated puff pastry strips
  • Flour for all purposes, to coat an area


Steps to prepare the Spicy Cheese Twists

  • Turn the oven on to 425 Fahrenheit. Put parchment rolls on a pair of baking sheets and place them separately. In a tiny container, combine the Gouda and thyme; leave aside.
  • One puff pastry strip should be rolled out into a 14-inch rectangle on an area dusted with flour. Use a knife or spoon to poke everything deeply. In a tiny bowl, combine an egg and a teaspoon of water. Gently spread the egg concoction over the crust. Add the cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt in equal amounts.
  • Split the puff pastry in the center to create a pair of rectangles that are 14 by 7 inches. Using both sides of your hands, push ¾ cup of the Gouda combination uniformly across any of the rectangles to secure the cheese to the bread.
  • Place the remaining pastry sheet immediately atop the cheese-topped pastry page, egg-washed face-up. Using your palms to adhere the cheese to the dough, generously distribute the remainder of the ⅓ cup Gouda concoction over the whole crust.
  • Slice the pastry pile crosswise into two rectangles measuring 14 by 3½ inches. Each rectangle should yield 12 segments, each measuring approximately 3½ by 1 inch.
  • A single piece at a glance, wrap both edges in reverse ways until they resemble a bow tie with both ends on the cheese facing up. Place bow ties, a minimum of ½ inch distance, on baking pans that have been prepped.
  • To make the tips stick to the paper, lightly tap them downwards. Using fingertips, compress the exact center of each strand to form the bow tie’s core.
  • Cook, one sheet of parchment paper at one time, in an already heated oven for 12 to 16 minutes, or until golden and crispy brown. For a minimum of five minutes, let the baking tray chill. Heat or dish at an ambient temperature.
