Cinnamon Twists

This classic snack size dessert takes minutes to make. With buttery, flaky puff pastry and sweet brown sugar, they are topped with a tangy lemon glaze. They are so good you won’t be able to eat just one.

1 sheet puff pastry
4 tbsp melted butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Ingredients – Lemon Glaze
4 tbsp icing sugar
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Prepare the cinnamon-sugar mix by mixing together the cinnamon and the brown sugar. Set aside.

Roll out the store bought dough to a 9” x 12” size (if you use pre-rolled sheets this is not necessary). Cut the dough in half to create two 4.5” x 12” strips. Brush each half with the melted butter and then press in the brown sugar mix into the butter. Using a pastry cutter, cut the dough into 1” wide strips. Twist the dough and place onto the prepared baking sheet approximately 2” apart.

Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. Let the twists rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes when removed from the oven. While they are cooling, make the glaze by mixing the icing sugar and the lemon juice until the icing sugar is completely melted into the juice. Drizzle over cooled twists.

Makes 24 twists.
