Cinnamon Sugar Puff Pastry Twists
How to make Cinnamon Sugar Twists with Puff Pastry.
Crystal | Beat Bake Eat
light brown sugar, packed
Dash of salt
unsalted butter, softened
sheets (397 grams) frozen puff pastry dough, thawed but fridge cold
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, combine all of the cinnamon sugar ingredients.
To another small bowl, add all of the egg wash ingredients then beat vigorously with a fork or a small whisk.
Make sure your work surface is large and you have plenty of space.
Dust your work surface with flour.
Using a rolling pin, roll out one sheet of puff pastry as thin as possible without tearing it, roughly in the shape of a rectangle.
Using the back of a spoon or a pastry brush, spread half of the butter over the entire surface of the puff pastry dough.
Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar over it then use the back of a spoon to spread it out over the entire surface, all the way to the edges.
Using the rolling pin, roll out the second sheet of puff pastry as thin as possible without tearing it, roughly the same shape and size as the first.
Place it on top of the first sheet of dough.
Spread the remaining butter on the bottom half. Then sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar over it. Use the back of a spoon to spread it out.
Using the bare side, fold in half crosswise.
Pinch the seams closed.
Using a large sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut into strips no wider than 1 inch.
Twist each strip tightly (this process is messy) then place them on the baking sheet spaced evenly apart.
Using a pastry brush, coat each twist generously with egg wash.
Bake at 425F for 10 minutes then lower the temperature to 375F (don’t remove twists from the oven) and bake for 15 minutes until puffed and golden (a small amount of sugar may leak out during baking).
Cool on sheet 3 - 4 minutes.
Serve immediately while freshly baked and warm. Twists harden quickly as they cool!
For softer twists, bake for a minute less.
The only accurate way to check for doneness is to cut a twist in half and judge by what the inside looks like.
