Puff Pastry Cinnamon Rolls

I'm going to be honest here...these tasty little bites came from that want for something sweet in the middle of the afternoon. With there being nothing in the house to fill that need -unusual in this house let me tell you, and after having a rummage through the cupboards and finding a roll of puff pasty in the fridge these seemed like the perfect choice! While they may not win any beauty pageants, they are very tasty and perfect with a cup of tea. 

They are very simple to make, so simple in fact you could whip them up for breakfast if you wanted to. Unlike cinnamon rolls made with dough these need no time to rise or any forward planning really...just a pre-heated oven.

You will need:
1 sheet of roll out puff pastry
2 1/2 tablespoons of butter -softened 
2 tablespoons of packed brown sugar 
2 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon 

For the glaze:
2 tablespoons of icing sugar
1 tablespoon of milk
1 1/2 tablespoons of golden syrup
Small handful of pecan half -finely chopped (optional)

If I had thought about making these before hand I would have maybe made the glaze with maple syrup instead, but to be honest it worked out so well I think I prefer the golden syrup.

1. Preheat your oven to 220 degrees c.

2. In a bowl mix together your butter, cinnamon and brown sugar (-if using unsalted butter add a pinch of salt) to make your filling, keep mixing until you have a smooth paste.

3. Unroll or unfold your puff pastry sheet and lay it out flat, turn it so it is lengthwise or landscape to you. Then spread your filling all over the puff pastry sheet, making sure that it is as even as possible.

4. Now start rolling! Starting at one end, make a tiny fold and do this along the length of the sheet. Keep going back and forth until you have one long roll of pasty. When you reach around half way it rolls very easily.

5. To make your mini cinnamon rolls as even as possible cut your roll of pastry in half so you have two equal parts, then cut those in half again so you have 4. Now cut each of these smaller rolls into 3 even(ish) sized bits. 

6. Place them evenly spaced on a lined baking tray, swirls facing up, and pop them in the oven for between 15-20 minutes, I always find it depends on the oven but you want them to be golden brown.

While they are cooking away you can make you glaze...

1. In a bowl add your milk and icing sugar and mix until combined, then add your golden syrup and chopped pecan if you fancy them. 

I had mine hot straight from the oven with the glaze on top but you can let them cool first if you like. So there you go, super simple cinnamon rolls. -there's tongue twister for you! :)
