Wow, these are so good, and easy too! Sprinkled sugar on the pastry board, then used a combination of sugar, nuts and cinnamon on the inside. Brushed them lightly with melted butter before baking. YUM!


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Sprinkle a thick layer of sugar on a pastry board.
  3. Place puff pastry on top and roll into a neat oblong.
  4. Fold one long side of puff pastry inward, like a jellyroll, stopping at the centre.
  5. Repeat on the other side. The 2 sides will meet in the centre.
  6. Cut into 1/4 inch slices and press each slice in sugar.
  7. Place slices on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes.
  9. Turn over and bake for another 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Variation:.
  11. In a food processor, process 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 2 tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon until finely ground.
  12. sprinkle dough with mixture before folding.
