Crunchy and salty with just a hint of sweetness, these light cheese twists satisfy every craving while keeping it hassle-free with ready-to-use puff pastry dough.


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and honey with 2 tbsp water.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry into a 10x14–inch rectangle. With the long end facing you, cut the pastry in half lengthwise into 2, 10x7–inch rectangles. Brush both pieces with egg mixture.

  4. Evenly distribute the shredded Beemster Classic over 1 piece of pastry and top with the remaining piece of pastry, egg side down. Press gently and roll into an 8x10–inch rectangle. Brush the top with egg mixture.

  5. With the long end facing you, slice the pastry lengthwise into 16 (½–inch) strips. Twist the pastry, pulling slightly to stretch the dough, and pinch the ends to seal. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  6. Bake until golden brown and crispy, 12–15 min.
