Happy Valentine’s Day! I can’t believe that Valentine’s is here already. It kind of snuck up on me this year, but I still wanted to make some special cookies for my family. This recipe is so simple it feels like I am cheating by making them these cookies. They are made with puff pastry, which believe it or not is vegan (at least the Pepperridge Farm brand is). I hope you all enjoy your Valentine’s Day!
1 box of puff pastry thawed (I know Pepperridge Farm brand is vegan)
4 TBSP Earth Balance melted
4 TBSP sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400. Cover a baking sheet in parchment or a silpat. Place 1 sheet of pastry on a well floured surface. Sprinkle is with a little four to prevent sticking and roll it out a little bit. You want to make it about 2 inches longer. Brush it with 2 TBSP of the Earth Balance. Sprinkle the pastry with half of the sugar and half of the cinnamon in an even layer. Roll up the dough starting on one of the shorter ends. Roll it to about the middle and then roll up the other side of the pastry until it meets in the middle. Slice the pastry into 1/2 inch slices and place on the baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Make sure the cookies stay rolled up tight. Bake for 10 minutes until they cookies are puffed and nicely browned. Let the cookies cool on a rack.
Repeat with the other sheet of pastry.
