These quick cookies are made by folding cinnamon and sugar into layer of prepared puff pastry. This came from Vegetarian Times magazine. I have not tried this, posting for future use.


  1. Preheat oven to 450. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine sugar and cinnamon in bowl. Sprinkle work surface with 1/4 cup 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 tablespoons 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 3-5 minutes more, or until caramelized on both sides. Cool on wire rack.
