Cooking with kids – Cinnamon Swirls

One thing my daughter loves is cinnamon, whether it’s on her churros or in moussaka. She fancied some cinnamon buns at the weekend but as I was in the middle of unpacking from the move I didn’t fancy making anything too involved. Luckily for her I had a pack of puff pastry in the fridge!

To make the cinnamon swirls all you do is:

  • Unroll a pack of puff pastry
  • Mix 4tbsp brown sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon
  • Sprinkle over the puff pastry
  • Roll both long edges into the centre, ensuring the roll is tight
  • Place in the fridge for half an hour to firm up
  • Cut into slices and place on a greased baking tray
  • Bake at 180 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes
  • Enjoy!

Apparently she’s having them for breakfast before school this week, I doubt they will make it past Sunday evening!
