Savoury and sweet twists to get you through lockdown

savoury twists

Let’s face it we all need a little bit of a treat in lockdown. So when our WEEC cook Kalpna heard our preschool children were creating some ‘Krispy Treats’ for their friends in the home corner, she decided to turn their ideas into reality. Together they have come up with two tasty treats.

First up is the Krispy Twist – which has a lovely savoury filling complete with prosciutto and parmesan. Next, we have the Krispy Heart filled with healthy sweet ingredients such as cinnamon and coconut. The children at our service, can’t wait to make these two new treats together with their friends in the home corner.

Savoury Krispy Twists – Makes 20


  • 2 sheets puff pastry defrosted but still chilled 
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese finely grated 
  • 4 oz (125g) prosciutto thinly sliced 
  • 1 egg for egg wash 


  1. Preheat oven to 200ºC. Line two large baking trays with non-stick paper. 
  2. Place one sheet of puff pastry on a cutting board 
  3. Spread half of the parmesan cheese evenly over puff pastry. 
  4. Top with half prosciutto slices, covering the entire pastry and cheese. 
  5. Slice into even strips about 1inch/2.5cm thickness. 
  6. Hold the prosciutto in place and twist and roll each strip. Place on lined baking sheets. 
  7. Beat egg with a teaspoon of water and brush each twist with egg wash. 
  8. Repeat with remaining ingredients. 
  9. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy. 
  10. Cool on a wire rack.

These twisted treats are always a hit amongst the children at our service. They enjoy both the savoury and sweet versions. Which one would you prefer?
