- Lots of granulated sugar
- Puff pastry
- Parchment Paper (aka baking paper) or a Silpat baking mat
1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Sprinkle about 1/4 cup of
sugar over your workstation. Roll out the puff pastry to about 10X12
inches. Sprinkle another 1/4 cup of sugar (and spices if using) over the
2 Roll up the left vertical side inward, stopping in the
middle of the dough. Roll up the right side of the dough. The two rolls
should be meeting at the middle and touching. Press the two sides
together gently and let the dough chill in the fridge for at least half
an hour. Repeat with any more puff pastry you may have.
3 Starting at one end, cut off pieces of the log, in slices
about 1/2 inch in thickness. Lightly sprinkle sugar onto each side.
Pinch and press the sides of the two rolls together to ensure that they
don't unroll during baking. Place on large parchment lined baking
sheets, or a baking sheet lined with a Silpat. They will increase size
dramatically, so leave plenty of room between each cookie and only bake a
dozen at a time.
4 Set the tray in the middle of the oven. Bake for about 10-15
minutes or until the sugar has caramelized. Allow them to cool on a
rack for 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
