3 Cheese Twists

Anthony Nicometi Jr


By now....Anyone who knows me, knows I'm a Cheeseaholic! about a Month ago, I paid $16.59 for about an ounce wedge of Apple smoked Provolone. Nevertheless, I'm always looking for new ways to use my favorite ingredient. And these Cheese twists, sure do the trick! This recipe is a Play off of the Barefoot Contessa's "Cheese Straws" (Although she didn't nearly use as much cheese as I did!) These are so easy, and so delicious, I hope you try them!
