  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. 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.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Note
  • If you prefer to use piecrust instead of the puffed pastry bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

So easy and so tasty!

What a light, delightful appetizer! I made these as directed, but added a little grated Parmesan as well. A real crowd pleaser!

Be sure to check if your pistachio nuts are salted and if they are, cut WAY back on the kosher salt and maybe don’t use any. Easy recipe. My second batch turned out much better with only a smal...

I made these for a party I went to and they were a big hit. I prepared as directed and they turned out superb. The only change I made was to bake an additional 4 minutes. Thanks for a great r...
