Black Sesame & Herb Double Cheese Twists
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • ½ cup shredded jalapeno jack cheese
  • ½ cup shredded OKA cheese or Jarlsberg
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh herbs, I used thyme & parsley
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Roll out each sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured board until it is approximately 10 X 12-inches. Beat the egg with 1 tablespoon of water and brush the surface of the pastry. Sprinkle each sheet evenly with both cheeses, fresh herbs, salt, pepper and the sesame seeds. With the rolling pin or your hands, lightly press the flavourings into the puff pastry. Cut each sheet crosswise with a floured knife or pizza wheel into 11 or 12 strips. Twist each strip and lay on baking sheets lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Brush with additional egg wash.
  3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned and puffed. Turn each straw and bake for another 2 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
