Cinnamon Sugar Breakfast Buns
Yield: 8 buns
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed in the refrigerator (about 1 hour)
  • 4 tbl butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbl cinnamon
  • flour for rolling
  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Prepare muffin pan by brushing with melted butter and sprinkling with cinnamon-sugar. Set aside.
  2. On a clean countertop sprinkle some flour and an even coating of the cinnamon sugar mixture, place puff pastry in the center, and sprinkle with a little more flour. Roll puff pastry out, extending each edge about 1 inch.
  3. Brush pastry with melted butter and coat evenly with cinnamon sugar. Use the rolling pin to roll the cinnamon-sugar into the dough.
  4. Roll the pastry up – if the seam does not close, brush with melted butter and press gently to close.
  5. Cut the log into 8 pieces (I usually start by cutting in half, then each half in half, etc).
  6. Place each roll on its side into the prepared muffin pan.*
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly golden and the center is firm to the touch.
*if baking later, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge at this point. when ready to bake, remove plastic and proceed to next step.
