“Originally a recipe from the 1960's that was meant to be served with drinks for a St. Paddy's day celebration. Personally, I think these are good for any occasion!” - by slmcm
Original recipe yields 72 twists
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Unfold the sheets of puff pastry, and brush tops with egg white. Sprinkle pistachios and salt over the egg white wash; flip the sheets, brush with egg white, and sprinkle with pistachios and salt. With a sharp knife, cut pastry into 3-inch long strips, about 3/4 inch wide. Twist the strips twice, then arrange on the prepared baking sheets so they don't touch.
- Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 15 minutes.

Cut into strips but..." See more did not twist. They were AWESOME! ! ! Also, if you buy the pre-shelled pistachios, you don't need any more salt. Bravo!"
"So simple, easy and fast but so good! Great combo of flavors and textures with the flaky puff pastry and crunchy pistachios/kosher salt. The only thing I did different was to just leave the twists the..." See more length of the pastry (didn't cut into 3" strips) and leave the nuts chopped a little larger. Simplicity at it's best. Thanks for sharing!"
