Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed according to package directions
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray 2 baking sheets with vegetable cooking spray or line them with parchment paper. Stir the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork. 

  2. Unfold the pastry on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry into a 12-inch square. Brush the pastry with the egg mixture.

  3. Stir the pecans, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle the pecan mixture over half of the pastry. Fold the other pastry half over the pecan filling. Slide the pastry onto a baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until the pastry is firm.

  4. Roll the chilled pastry on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch square. Using a sharp knife or fluted pastry wheel, cut the dough crosswise into 24 (1/2-inch wide) strips. Twist the strips and place them 2 inches apart, on the prepared baking sheets, pressing down the ends. Refrigerate the twists for 1 hour.

  5. Bake the pastry twists for 20 minutes or until they're golden brown. Let them cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
