  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry dough, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place parchment paper on baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar. 
  • Brush one side of puff pastry with melted butter. Sprinkle all over with sugar mixture. Press the sugar into the puff pastry so it will stick. Flip over and repeat with the other side. 
  • Cut into 1-inch strips. I use a pizza cutter to make it easy. 
  • Twist each strip and lay on prepared baking sheet.  Make sure to leave 1-2 inch space in between each strip. 
  • Bake 12-15 minutes and then let cool.
  • For frosting, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and milk until combined.
  • Drizzle frosting over twists or use to dip.
