  • 1 sheet puff pastry sheets thawed
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. 
  • Unfold puff pastry sheet onto a sheet of parchment paper or a lightly floured surface. Using a pastry brush, brush melted butter over the entire surface of puff pastry sheet. 
  • In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Sprinkle sugar mixture evenly over dough and pat to adhere with butter. 
  • With a sharp knife, slice pastry sheet from top to bottom into 12 thin strips. Twist each strip about six to seven times around, with the cinnamon layer facing inward and the plain (underside) of the pastry facing outward on the twist. 
  • Place twists 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets (they will spread and untwist slightly when baking, which is why I space them out onto two sheets). Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. 
  • Serve cinnamon twists warm or at room temperature.
