I had one last puff pastry sheet in the freezer and I wanted to make a sweet treat. (insert sympathetic fake teardrop here). That means I must restock. Anyway...I've been having cravings for cinnamon rolls lately. Who doesn't love a nice warn cinnamon roll with ooey gooey frosting slathered on top. I decided to make use of that last sheet and make myself some swirlies.
The only thing inside the dough is brown sugar and cinnamon. I rolled it up and divided it into ten mini wheels. I flattened it a bit to give it a pinwheel shape. When they came out I lightly basted the top with some honey and powdered sugar. As if it couldn't get any sweeter. Mwhahahaha!!! This is devilishly good. You can't have one. I had 5!!!
Makes 10 mini wheels
1 puff pastry sheet - defrosted
1/3 c brown sugar
3 Tbsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
Preheat your oven to 400˚F
Lay the puff pastry on a flat surface the fold lines facing parallel to you. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon over. Then tightly roll the dough. Cut into 10 wheels.
Take each when and flatten the on the side, swirl facing up. Place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle some of the granulated sugar on top.
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Baste them slightly with a bit of honey.
