Puff Pastry Sheet- 1
Granulated sugar- 1/3 cup
Cinnamon - 3/4 tsp
Walnut, coarsely ground- 3 Tbsp
1.Thaw the puff pastry sheet for 30-40 minutes.Preheat the oven at 400 degree F.
2.Mix the sugar and cinnamon and spread a couple of Tbsp,evenly on a flat surface where you could roll the pastry sheet.
3.Place the pastry sheet with the shorter edge facing towards you.
4.Mix the walnut into the sugar cinnamon mixture and pour that on top of the pastry sheet.\
5.Spread the mixture evenly on the pastry sheet.Now roll it till the sugar mixture adhere well on both sides of the sheet.You do not have to roll it bigger, just a few inches more on both sides, evenly, will do.
6.Fold the sides of the square towards the center so that they go halfway to the middle. Fold them again so the two folds meet exactly at the middle of the dough.Leave a 1/4 inch space in the middle.
7.Now fold both the sides , one half on the other half, so that you will get 6 layers.
8.Cut the slices that are between 1/4 and 1/2 inches wide and place them cut side facing upwards on a baking sheet.
9.Bake for about 14-15 minutes or till both the sides turn a light brown.You may change the sides after 13-14 minutes and continue baking the other side too.
1.This will yield you about 22 cookies.I recommend that you make this with 2 pastry sheets, this will be over in seconds :-)
2.This is not too cinnamony, since we like it this way.If you wish you could add more cinnamon or do not add any.
3.Also the sugar is just perfect for our taste.You could add little more if you like really sweet cookies.
4.This is so versatile, that you could use your imagination to add or delete anything into the sugar.The basic recipe just calls for sugar and pastry sheet :-)
5. Rolling is not a must, you could leave this step, but then the filling will not stay much.
