Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 25g (1oz or ¼ cup) confectioners' (icing/powdered) sugar
  • 200g (7oz) puff pastry

Directions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment or a silicone baking mat, and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the cinnamon with the icing sugar. Set aside.
  3. Roll out the puff pastry into a neat rectangle, or if using ready-rolled puff pastry, then trim to about 20 x 30cm (8 x 12in). Cut into rectangles, each about 5 x 10cm (2 x 4in).
  4. Sprinkle each of the rectangles with around ½ tsp of the cinnamon sugar, then roll into a cigar shape - to explain this a little better, I rolled from the bottom left corner to the top right corner.
  5. Dust the rolls with the leftover cinnamon sugar and place on the prepared baking sheet, allowing 1-2-in for spreading.
  6. Place in the fridge to chill for at least 15-30 minutes, Meanwhile, preheat you oven to 220°C (425°F), Gas mark 7.
  7. Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown.
  8. To serve, dust with some icing sugar (optional.)
