cinnamon swirly sticks

7 Apr

Just because something is easy, doesn’t mean that it’s not tasty, and no, it doesn’t undermine you as a baker-wannabe! These swirly sticks are about as easy as it’ll get, especially since I used store-bought puff pastry. And I’d also like to point out that taking a few shhortcuts doesn’t make you a bad baker-wannabe either! So, you’ll need three ingredients if you’re able to pull yourself away from pretenses and use store-bough puff pastry. But if you like, you can of course make it yourself. Except then, it won’t be quick and easy, which was the whole point for this recipe =)

twist these babies as much as you'd like to get them looking pretty!

Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 can of Pillsbury Crescents

How-to:

  1. Heat oven to 375F.
  2. Unroll dough, and separate into 4 rectangles. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. Using a rolling pin, flatten out each rectangle, and squeeze together the pre-made perforations to seal them.
  4. Brush two of the rectangles with the melted butter and sprinkle about 1 tbsp of the cinnamon sugar mix onto each rectangle.
  5. Top each rectangle with remaining dough. Press edges together lightly.
  6. Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, cut each rectangle lengthwise into six strips.
  7. Twist each strip four or five times and place onto ungreased baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
  9. Remove from baking sheet, brush tops with butter and sprinkle remaining sugar mixture on top.
  10. Let cool and snack away. Try to remember to share!
