How to Make It

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Sprinkle half the brown sugar on the work surface.  Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface.  Sprinkle the pastry with the remaining brown sugar.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 14x10-inch rectangle.  Cut the pastry sheet in half lengthwise.  Cut each half crosswise into 18 (3/4-inch wide) strips, making 36.  
Cut the bacon slices in half lengthwise, then crosswise, making 36 (about 5x1/2-inch) strips.
Place 1 bacon strip on each pastry strip.  Twist the pastry and bacon together and place on the baking sheets, pressing down the ends.  Stir the cheese and cayenne pepper in a small bowl.  Sprinkle the pastries with the cheese mixture. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown and the bacon is crisp.  Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes.

Recipe Tips

  • Ingredient Note: Bacon varies in size from brand to brand.  Depending the brand you use, you may have some leftover pieces after cutting the strips needed for this recipe.
  • Recipe Note: Parchment paper keeps the pastry from sticking to the baking sheet and also makes for easier cleanup. If you don't have parchment paper, you can spray the baking sheet with cooking spray instead. However, cooking spray may cause the bottoms of the pastries to brown more quickly, so begin checking for doneness 5 minutes early.
  • Make-Ahead: To make ahead, cover and freeze the unbaked pastries on the baking sheets until firm.  Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and store in a gallon-size resealable plastic bag in the freezer for up to 1 month.  To bake, place the pastries onto baking sheets and bake as directed above.
  • Flavor Variation: For Cheddar & Rosemary Puff Twists, substitute shredded Cheddar cheese for the brown sugar and minced fresh rosemary for the cayenne pepper.
