Barefoot Bloggers Sticky Buns

by jerseygirl on January 22, 2009 · 28 comments

Today’s Barefoot Bloggers recipe was chosen by Melissa of Made By Melissa and it is Easy Sticky Buns. I cut way down on the butter and sugar so they are more like palmiers. Palmiers are a French classic made with puff pastry rolled in sugar. These are a bit thicker than your traditional palmier and also have plenty of cinnamon. To make them really special, I added cinnamon chips.

The kiddos are not big fans of raisins and nuts in their baked goods so I left them out. The family loved these. They were much lighter than sticky buns so I think I will call them cinnamon puffs. They really were a nice easy home baked treat. If you would like the Contessa’s original recipe, click here.

Cinnamon Puffs
1 package (17.3 ounces/2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, defrosted
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2/3 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup cinnamon chips
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Lightly flour a wooden board or stone surface. Unfold one sheet of puff pastry with the folds going left to right. Brush the whole sheet with half of the melted butter. Leaving a 1-inch border on the puff pastry, sprinkle each sheet with 1/3 cup of the brown sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons of the cinnamon, and 1/4 cup cinnamon chips. Starting with the end nearest you, roll the pastry up snugly like a jelly roll around the filling, finishing the roll with the seam side down. Trim the ends of the roll about 1/2 inch and discard. Slice the roll in 8 equal pieces, each about 1 1/2 inches wide. Place each piece, spiral side up, on the parchment lined baking sheets. Repeat with the second sheet of puff pastry to make 16 rolls. Bake for 24 minutes, until the puffs are golden brown on top and firm to the touch. Allow to cool for a few minutes then remove from pan and serve.
