Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry
grated Parmesan cheese
chopped fresh parsley
dried oregano leaves, crushed
This is the easiest recipe ever and the results are delicious! Here are my changes and substitutions: I didn't have any parsley, so I substituted French thyme. I also experimented with different toppings once the twists were on the cookie sheet and glazed with egg white. I sprinkled some with sesame seeds, some with poppy seeds and some with garlic salt. And some with a combination. Our favorite was with the sesame seeds with a pinch of garlic salt.
I also experimented with the size of the twists, and truthfully, all were delightful! Perhaps the largest ones were a tad doughy, but still quite good.
One extra note - we didn't care for these once they cooled off, they became somewhat flaccid. But a quick pop into the toaster oven (less than one cycle through on medium "toast") made them even crunchier and we actually preferred them reheated.
Next time I make these, I will make them an hour or so before my guests arrive and then re-toast them before serving. That should buy me some time to make the main course.
Thanks for posting this recipe - it's a winner!
These were delicious when made fresh, but not as good when made from frozen. I used dried parsley.
Very good. I made one batch as the recipe stated. For the second batch instead of using the cheese, I used cinnamon and sugar. Did everything else the same. Wow, great either way.
We LOVE these!!! I didn't know that this recipe was on AR (I first tried them after reading the little recipe card that came in the puff pastry box.) So, I was glad to see it here so I could review them...really - try these (and make no changes!)
These were very good. My husband and kids loved them. I used garlic powder, salt and pepper instead of the herbs, which still gave good flavor.
This recipe saved me! I needed something quick and yummy for a Christmas party. I had puff pastry on hand and all the other ingredients. I added 1/2 tsp garlic powder to the cheese mixture simply because I love garlic. They were a hit with my family...especially all the little ones. Wonderful!
Pretty, delicious, light and flaky. I liked the addition of the oregano, which adds great flavor, although any number of herbs or spices would be very good. I also added garlic powder, which seemed a natural for this.
Loved it! I modified recipe a little- added 1/8 cup of shredded cheddar and mozarella mix plus fresh herbs I had left from Thanksgiving, rosemary and thyme, garlic powder. The result is delicious. Going to make them for Christmas as an appetizer.
These cheesy Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry strips are so easy to make!
