PARMESAN GARLIC PUFF PASTRY BREADSTICK TWISTS – I made these right before the chaos started. The chaos that comes with packing up 103 U-haul boxes to move 10 minutes down the road so I could have my very own kitchen. A tiny but mighty kitchen that’s all mine. . . and. . . of course Moon the Kitchen Cat’s too.

It’s been 519 hours 9 minutes and 13 seconds since my last post and I MISSED YOU!! I’m not completely settled but I’m getting back in the kitchen anyway.

Nothing can keep me away longer.

Not even the fact that I can’t find my mugs and have been drinking tea out of bowls. Not even the 30 plus boxes still staring at me. I’m ignoring them.

Because I MISSED YOU!! That much.

Anywho. . .enough about me, it’s time for breadsticks. The easiest breasticks you will ever meet.

To make them a sheet of puff pastry is cut into 3/4-inch strips, brushed with melted butter and rolled in Parmesan cheese seasoned with garlic powder and basil.

They’re twisted up and baked until golden, puffy and totally irresistible. Flaky, crunchy, buttery and delicious.

You’ll find them best served warm and fresh – straight from the oven so they melt in your mouth.
