Print Recipe


  • 2 sheets Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry 1 package
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • powdered sugar optional


  • Thaw puff pastry sheets according to package directions (about 40 minutes).
  • Preheat oven to 400*F
  • Gently unfold the pastry sheets onto a floured work surface.
  • In a small bowl beat the egg and water with a fork until combined. Brush one sheet of the pastry with the egg wash.
  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto the pastry that has just had the egg wash added.
  • Add the chopped pecans, then another tablespoon of cinnamon sugar, try to distribute evenly all over the pastry sheet.
  • Brush the second sheet of puff pastry with egg wash, then put the egg side down on top of the pecan/cinnamon/sugar pastry. Use a rolling pin to roll on top of the pastry sheets and seal the two sheets together.
  • Use a pizza cutter to slice the pastry into strips about 1 inch wide. You can make short strips (as pictured) or long (full sheet) size.
  • Move the strips to a parchment paper lined baking sheet and twist twice, then press the ends down onto the baking sheet.
  • Gently brush the twists with egg wash and top with the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • Bake one baking sheet at a time in a pre-heated 400*F oven for about 10-12 minutes. When they are golden brown and puffy (after 10-12 minutes), remove from oven and use tongs to flip over the twists, then return to the oven for another 2 minutes or so.
  • Allow to cool slightly, then enjoy!
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.


These twists could be served as an appetizer, as a brunch item with coffee, or with a bowl of vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce for dessert.
