Pastry Cinnamon Swirls

20180804_095620

I had some pastry left over and decided to give these quick little bites a try, the flavour was amazing so sweet. I drizzled with a little Maple Syrup and I have to say it went really well, but so would chocolate…Mmmmmmm!

I used my little Crisper plate to bake and it only took 5 minutes……..what could be better? 5 minute bites!

 

1 sheet puff pastry

5 tbsp Golden Caster Sugar

3 tbsp cinnamon

1 egg for wash

 

  1. Mix the caster sugar & cinnamon together in a bowl (you can use quantities to your own taste)
  2. Lay out the pastry and sprinkle the sugar mix all over, then fold in half lengthways, seal with a little water
  3. Cut the pastry with a sharp knife or pizza cutter into long strips about 1cm wide        20180804_094011
  4. Take both ends of strip and slowly start to twist, not too tightly or the pastry won’t puff up.                                                                                                                            20180804_094123
  5. Then gently wrap around into a swirl shape and seal the end underneath to the centre. Make sure to seal tightly or they will unravel as some of mine did while cooking.  Brush with the egg wash and place onto the preheated crisper plate. Cook onto Dynamic crisp for 5-6 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.                  20180804_094811    20180804_095322

Oh it’s that time of the year where cinnamon is a staple ingredient in your household and no better way to use it than to make cinnamon glazed swirls……oh so yummy!

For the swirls:-

1 puff pastry sheet

spoonful of butter melted

3 tbsp caster sugar

3 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

For the Glaze:-

1/2 cup icing sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

10ml milk

 

  1. Pre-heat oven to 190deg
  2. Roll out pastry sheet, brush with butter then sprinkle sugars and cinnamon evenly over pastry sheet
  3. Carefully start to roll the pastry up not too tight but not too loose
  4. Using a sharp knife, slice the roll into 6 or 7 sections evenly.
  5. Grease a baking tin or tray and place the swirls upright leaving a little space between each to allow for expansion of pastry.                                                                                            20161120_100000
  6. Bake for approx 20-25 mins until golden brown
  7. Meanwhile to make the glaze, mix the milk and vanilla essence with the icing sugar until you have a thick but not too thick consistencey, if too runny just keep adding more icing sugar. Using a spoon drizzle over swirls once removed from oven, allow to harden and serve……oh so yummy!
