Edible Christmas Gifts Part 2, Cinnamon Sugar Pastry Wheels

I bring you another idea for an edible gift. I am sure you can find a more elaborate method for these beauties but mine is very simple, well my daughter makes them on her own.
I buy a pretty plate and make it part of the gift.

Plain flour, for dusting
1 x 320g ready roll puff pastry
75g golden caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
2 tsp ground cinnamon

My version is very simple:

Preheat the oven to 200C. 

On a floured surface (I use the blue film that comes with the pastry), roll out the pastry to a rectangle. Or leave as it rolls out.

Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over the pastry and roll it over with the rolling pin. 

Roll the rectangle from the short side to make a sausage and Chill for 10 minutes until firm.

Cut into slices with a serrated knife
and lay flat-side down on tray lined with baking parchment and press them lightly.

Chill for 20 minutes.

Sprinkle with some more sugar and bake for 18-20 minutes. 


  1. This is an excellent recipe/project for the little ones, Marisa! I think my daughter and I will try it this weekend. I happen to have a couple boxes of frozen puff pastry. And the gift with the plate included is perfect. Teachers and bus drivers would be delighted to receive them for Christmas. Thanks for the idea! xoxo, Angie.
