    I really love this recipe, it is so simple and easy. Sometimes for a slightly sweet touch I melt together some butter and honey, and brush the twists just before I take them out of the oven.  -  17 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Well, I completely forgot to get the puff pastry at Shop Rite BUT I had Grands rolls from Pillsbury. Took them out of the can, rolled them out and proceeded as the recipe suggests. Cut into strips but did not twist. They were AWESOME! ! ! Also, if you buy the pre-shelled pistachios, you don't need any more salt. Bravo!  -  15 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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 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!  -  18 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
