Easy Puff Pastry Cinnamon Twists

Posted on September 1, 2013
Hi Everybody! Happy first day of September! Even though it’s scorching hot outside and there are another three weeks left before the official start of fall, I always feel like the first day of September is a sort of unofficial start of the season. And what better way to welcome it than with the scent of cinnamon wafting through the kitchen! These Cinnamon Twists only take a couple of minutes and ingredients to make, and they are so good with a hot cup of tea or coffee!
(Recipe adapted from Pepperidge Farm)
*Makes about two dozen*
1 sheet of puff pastry
1 egg
2 tbs granulated sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
All-purpose flour (for dusting work surface)
1. Begin by preparing your puff pastry dough (make sure to thaw it out to where you can roll it out). Flour your work surface, and roll your puff pastry sheet into a 9×13 inch rectangle. Then, cut it in half down the longer length (use a knife or a pizza cutter). Make a quick egg wash by whisking together the egg with a tablespoon of water, and make your cinnamon sugar by combining the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon in a little bowl.
2. Brush each half with the egg wash, then sprinkle one side with the cinnamon sugar. Place the first half over the second half (egg wash side down) and seal them together using your rolling pin. Preheat your oven to 400 deg F and line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut half-inch strips out of your rectangle (cutting down the shorter length this time), then twist them, pinching the ends. Place on your baking sheet, and bake for 8 – 10 minutes, or until the cinnamon twists are golden brown.
Happy Baking, Everyone!
