Cheesy Garlic Herb Twists

Garlic, fresh herbs and cheese.. is there a better combo? I think not! These puff pastry sticks are light, buttery and flakey. Perfect to be served with a glass of red wine (because why not!) and a great way to wow guests with this easy recipe. 


This recipe makes 8 sticks


375g puff pastry

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup grated old cheddar

1 egg, whisked

Sesame seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C and line an oven tray with parchment paper.
  1. Lightly flour your working space and roll out the puff pastry into a 40×30 rectangle. Slice the puff pastry vertically into 8 strips, about 5cm each. Transfer the strips to the prepared oven tray.
  1. Melt the butter in a microwave safe dish and mix in the fresh herbs and garlic. Season with salt to taste. 
  1. Brush each pastry strip with the butter and sprinkle the cheese. 
  1. Fold a strip over vertically and pinch together the edges. Now twist the ends in opposite directions to create spiralled straws. Repeat with the remaining strips.
  1. Brush with the egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds over each puff pastry twist.
  1. Bake for 15-18 minutes until browned. Allow to cool before serving. Enjoy!
