Want a quick savoury snack that the whole family will enjoy and probably ask for more? Look no further. Just grab all the ingredients listed below, follow the baking guide and within an hour, everyone should be munching away on these gorgeously tasting cheese twists. These twists are delicious, savoury and have a way of luring the palate for more. Need I say more? Okay, I will. They are cheesy 🙂
There are actually two recipes I have of these cheese twists. This one requires you use just all purpose flour while the other would require puff pastry. More of the latter to come in another post. So for now, let’s concentrate on these cheese twists that got my husband and daughter ‘fighting’ for who to eat the last twist.
Here are the ingredients you would need;
115g all purpose flour
55g Cheddar cheese, grated plus extra to sprinkle and coat on top before baking
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp crushed red peppers
1/2 egg, lightly beaten
First, combine the flour, garlic salt and crushed red peppers in a bowl. Add the butter into the flour mixture, till well incorporated and the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Next, add the grated cheese and egg and mix well to form a dough. Wrap the dough in clingfilm and try to flatten it into a square, making it easier to roll once chilled. Chill for about 30 mins in the fridge.
Next, preheat oven to 200 C. Line your baking tray with parchment paper. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into strips and gently twists them and place them on the baking tray.
Grate more cheese on them and bake in the oven for about 15 mins or until golden brown. Transfer onto a wire rack after a few minutes on the tray to cool completely.
Serve with sauces of your choice and remember not to fight over the last twist 🙂
