Sweetest Cinnamon Sugar Croissant Buns
makes 6 little buns

Sweetest Cinnamon Sugar Croissant BunsINGREDIENTS

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of flaky sea salt (such as Maldon)
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed in the fridge overnight


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Sprinkle a bit of this mixture on the counter to keep the pastry dough from sticking to the surface.

Lay out the thawed but cold puff pastry sheet. Dump the rest of the sugar mixture on top, and spread it evenly over the surface. Use a rolling pin to press the sugar into the pastry (it won’t all get stuck; some will fall off, which is no big deal). Roll the pastry up like a jellyroll, with the cinnamon sugar inside. Cut into 6 buns, and play cut-side-up in a muffin tin. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, until puffed and golden and amazing smelling. Let cool for a couple of minutes in the tin, then scoop them out with a knife or offset spatula, and get eating.
