A Cheese Twist appetizer is a go-to for us during holidays. Flaky, crispy, cheesy, melt-in-your-mouth bites that satisfy those carb cravings. They are not new, but they are certainly popular with guests. We like to add a bit of mustard powder and herbs to boost the flavour. Cheese twists can be baked weeks ahead and warmed in the oven for a few minutes which makes them an easy party appetizer. Feel free to use your favourite cheese or combination of cheeses.
This recipe uses frozen packaged puff pastry which, in our opinion, is a little miracle. We are sure we cannot improve on it by making it ourselves and it is so *!##!** convenient. About 30 minutes start to finish for these cheese twists. In fact you can reduce the time even more if you use finely pre-shredded cheese. Easy, quick, good, pretty – go for it!
