Keyword cinnamon
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 12 rolls


  • 1 sheet ready rolled puff pastry or a blocked rolled out to around 0.5cm thickness
  • 2 tbsp salted butter softened
  • 2 tbsp dark brown muscovado sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 whisked egg or some milk to keep them egg free


  1. Preheat your oven to 180ºc (fan), and line a baking dish with greaseproof paper 

  2. Mix together the butter, sugar and ground cinnamon in a bowl until well combined

  3. Unroll your sheet of pastry and place on a flat surface  

  4. Spread your butter, sugar and cinnamon mixture evenly over your pastry

  5. This is the part where you decide whether you want really fat rolls or smaller ones, I prefer small ones so roll widest side up. If you like really fat rolls, you can roll up length ways 

  6. Cut your rolls with a really sharp knife and then place into your tray

  7. Glaze thoroughly with your egg or milk, then place the whole lot into the oven to bake for around 30 minutes or until the rolls are a nice golden brown colour. 

  8. Allow them to cool for 10 minutes in the tray before devouring with a cup of coffee.
