Cougar Cheese Twists

1 lb puff pastry
4 oz grated Viking Cheese

Preheat oven to 350°F

Roll out puff pastry dough into a 20 x 24-inch rectangle. Sprinkle half of the Viking cheese evenly over the dough and gently press cheese into dough. Fold dough in half crosswise, roll it out again to 20 by 24 inches and sprinkle on remaining cheese.

Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 1/3 inch strips. Take each strip by the ends and twist until evenly corkscrewed. Lay twists of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake until the twists are crisp and brown, about 15-20 minutes.

Remove from oven, cool for 5 minutes, then cut apart with a sharp knife. Finish cooling twists on a rack, and then store them in an airtight tin or plastic bag until serving time. Makes about 20 twists.
