Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 17.3-oz. pkg. puff pastry, thawed

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine sugar and cinnamon in bowl. Sprinkle work surface with 1/4 cup sugar mixture.

2. Open 1 puff pastry sheet, with 3 fold lines parallel to edge of work surface. Roll with rolling pin 3 times to close any cracks. Spread 2 Tbs. sugar mixture on puff pastry. Roll lightly to press in sugar mixture. Flip, and repeat to coat second side.

3. Fold short ends to first fold line. Fold again so 2 folds meet at middle of dough. Fold 1 half over other to make log. Cut into 15 slices. Dip cut sides in remaining sugar on work surface, and place on prepared baking sheet, cut-side up. Repeat with remaining puff pastry and sugar mixture.

4. Bake 6 minutes, or until sugar begins to caramelize on bottoms. Flip with spatula, and bake 3 to 5 minutes more, or until caramelized on both sides. Cool on wire rack.
