Cheese Twists

I made this recipe for New Year's Eve, and it was a huge hit!  They were the first tray that was completely emptied and no-one could believe that I had made them myself.  These cheese twists are so easy to make, and they are delicious!  They're simple enough to throw together for a last minute get-together, yet elegant enough for a party.  Give these a try...you won't be disappointed!

Cheese Twists

Makes 32 twists

2 cups finely shredded sharp Cheddar
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 box frozen puff pastry (2 sheets), thawed

1.  In a bowl, combine cheese, herbs and cayenne.

2.  On a lightly floured surface, roll out a sheet of pastry to a 16x9-1/2"rectangle.

3.  With the short side facing you, spread half of cheese mixture over bottom half of pastry sheet.

4.  Fold top half of pastry toward you over the bottom half, enclosing cheese mixture (making 8x9-1/2" rectangle). Press pastry down to help dough layers adhere and force out air pockets.

5.  Roll pastry into a 8x16" rectangle. Transfer to baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Repeat with remaining pastry sheet and cheese mixture.

6.  Remove 1 pastry sheet from refrigerator and place on a lightly floured cutting board.

7.  With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut pastry into 16 1x8" strips. Holding 1 end in each hand, twist each strip 3 or 4 times and place 1 inch apart on lined baking sheet, pressing ends down. Repeat with remaining pastry.

8.  Bake twists for 12 to 14 minutes, until golden brown. Serve at room temperature.
