Cinnamon Puffs

I bought a pack of puff pastry from Waitrose, and having defrosted it, discovered that there were 2 lots of pastry in the box. I used one to make a seafood tart, so what to do with the other one? I wanted something easy and quick so decided to try a recipe my friend gave me. 

1 lb (approx 450 grams)  puff pastry
100g caster sugar 
 30g unsalted butter, melted
1 tspn cinnamon [or more if you like it!]
Directions
Preheat your oven 180C/gas4.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Roll pastry out to about 1/8th inch thick.
Brush the pastry with the melted butter and sprinkle the sugar evenly all over then sprinkle with the cinnamon.
Roll the pastry into a log starting from the long edge of the rectangle that is closest to you.
Cut the pastry into 1 inch pieces, and place cut side down on the baking sheet.
Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes, until the bottoms of the puffs are golden brown. Turn them over and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until both sides are crisp and golden brown. 
Cool on a wire rack.



Nothing very fancy, but tasty little mouthfuls of cinnamon, pastry and sugar. A simple treat.

                                                                  Happy Easter.

I'm usually tempted to use up excess pastry on little savoury bites but these sound a lot more attractive.
