  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp red chili powder substitute with paprika
  • 1 tsp crushed black pepper
  • ½ cup shredded cheese
  • 1 egg beaten



  • Pre-heat oven to 375℉
  • Gently roll the thawed puff pastry to smoothen. Apply an egg wash over the sheet; making sure you get the edges. Evenly sprinkle salt, garlic powder, chili powder or paprika if using, crushed black pepper. Cover the sheet generously with cheese. I used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella but feel free to choose any cheese you like. Press the cheese using a rolling pin.
  • Fold the sheet in half and roll with a rolling pin again to make sure it sticks. Using a knife; cut into 1-inch strips and make twists with each strip. Apply an egg wash to each strip.

  • Bake for 16-18 mins. Let them cool a bit before serving. Store in a cool, dry place!


  • I like to pack these in brown paper bags. Tie with a ribbon and add some thyme sprigs on the bow to decorate.
