Recipe Tips

  • Make sure the oven is at the preheated temperature, otherwise you might end up with the twists not puffing up or the cheese just oozing out and going everywhere.
  • Ensure that you allow these to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container. Otherwise, the puff pastry will likely go soggy.
  • Ovens can vary in temperature, so make sure you keep an eye on them while they are baking.
  • Feel free to experiment with different types of cheese or herbs. You can radically change the flavors by tinkering with these ingredients.
