  1. Sprinkle a surface with 1/4 cup sugar; open puff pastry sheet on surface. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar. Roll into a 14-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar to within 1/2 in. of edges. Lightly press into pastry.
  2. With a knife, very lightly score a line widthwise across the middle of the pastry. Starting at one short side, roll up jelly-roll style, stopping at the score mark in the middle. Starting at the other side, roll up pastry jelly-roll style to score mark. Cut into 3/8-in. slices.
  3. Place cut side up 2 in. apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle lightly with 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake at 425 degrees F for 12 minutes. Turn pastries over and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake 5 minutes longer or until golden brown and glazed. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight containers.

I would give more than five stars, if I could to this recipe. I was looking for a different type of "cookie" to send to my son for Christmas, but had never used puff pastry before. These simpl...

I really want to like these more than I do. They turned out so little...I thought maybe they'd be bigger and puffier. And they practically burned...I have an oven thermometer, so I know I kept...

So easy to make. I prefer less sugar though. I thought they were wayyy too sweet. Instead of sprinkling with 1/2 cup of sugar, I think 1/4 cup suits me fine. Also, if you cook at a lower tem...

So easy! I wanted something light for a dessert and these are perfect. You can eat them alone or serve with ice cream. I used my convection oven set at 375 and had a great result. I think 425 mi...

wow! what a winning recipe....if you buy these at a bakery they are priced high.....i made exactly as stated, but didn't need to turn over....i used parchment paper and they were perfect.

Very impressive, very easy. I didn't turn my cookies over and baked them til they were nicely golden. They didn't have time to get stored in an airtight container, they were gone in a flash. ...

Delicious. I had some old puff pastry in the freezer that I needed to use so I decided to make these, and I'm so glad I did. In addition to cinnamon, I sprinkled some nutmeg and crushed cloves...

These are so good, and fun to make! Great instructions. I needed a quick recipe to use up my puff pastry and this fit the bill. My kids couldn't stay out of them! (Neither could I). Thanks!
