How to Make Cheesy Prosciutto Puff Pastry Twists
Call anything puff pastry and you have my full attention. You honestly can’t go wrong with crisp, flaky exterior giving way to soft, tender buttery dough wrapped in all things delicious. So this crazy good savory scheme begins by skimming the pastry with a thin layer of Dijon mustard. Next, lots of shredded cheese topped with peppered prosciutto, green onion, parmesan, and fresh rosemary and thyme. By all means change up the cheese, meat and herbs as you see fit.
Once you have your layered ingredients and flattened them gently with a floured rolling pin, brush the top half of the pastry and open edges with the egg wash. This acts as the glue to keep the twists together.
Next, fold the top half of the pastry over the bottom half of filling and align the edges. Then it’s just a matter of trimming the uneven edges and cutting the filled pastry into strips. I found using a pizza cutter wheel very effective, but a sharp knife will do the job as well.
Then twist the strips several times to keep the filling enclosed and brush with remaining egg wash. Give these twists some extra love with more parm, herbs and black pepper before popping in the oven.
As they bake some of the cheese will ooze out and that’s ok. Once that oozing cheese cools on the sheet pan it’s really good to munch on.😉
And when the twists come out of the oven that anticipatory craving of tender, flaky dough entwined with creamy, salty deliciously herby filling will finally be satisfied. Enjoy! xx, Kim
