On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry into 10- x 6-inch (25 x 15 cm) rectangle; brush with sesame oil. Sprinkle with all but 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each of the white and black sesame seeds.

Using sharp knife, cut pastry lengthwise into twelve 1/2-inch (1 cm) wide strips. Holding ends of each strip, stretch and twist in opposite directions to form twist. Place on parchment paper--lined rimmed baking sheet; press ends down lightly. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Brush egg over strips. Sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds, and salt, if using. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.) Bake in centre of 400°F (200°C) oven until crispy and butterscotch colour, about 15 minutes. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 2 days; wrap in foil and heat in 350°F/180°C oven for 10 minutes.)
