Cinnamon Bun Twists

 Cinnamon Bun Twists 













Perfect with a nice hot cup of tea or coffee. Comfort food at its best!  Cinnamon and brown sugar get twisted up in puff pastry and baked to make a simple, yet outrageously good snack or dessert. These Cinnamon Twists are flaky, crunchy, and perfectly sweet.


Cinnamon Bun Twists 


(1) 14-ounce package puff pastry 

1 large egg

1 teaspoon water

½ cup packed brown sugar

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking pan with parchment paper.













NOTE:  Let your pastry dough thaw and sit at room temp for 15 minutes.

Carefully unroll your sheet of pastry on to your work surface.  Roll and flatten seams and then trim the dough to form a rectangle. 

Add the egg and water in a small bowl and whisk together, set aside. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon and salt to a small bowl and whisk together. Set aside.


















Brush the top of the pastry with the egg wash, and spread the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the top.














Using a pastry wheel or sharp knife, cut 1” strips of dough. Pick up one strip of dough and place it on top of another strip of dough so that the cinnamon sugar sides are touching each other. Repeat this process with all pieces of dough until you have 7 “pairs” of dough strips.













Twist each strip of dough until the entire strip is twisted and then place on the baking sheet, spaced evenly apart.

Chill the twists in the freezer for 10 minutes, or in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. This helps the twists keep their shape while they bake.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Once chilled, remove the twists from the freezer and gently brush only the exposed pieces of pastry (not the cinnamon) and bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes, or until the pastries are lightly golden all over and puffed up.













Remove them from the oven, and let them cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack.
