When I made these in my pastry class, we used homemade puff pastry. While I love the homemade kind, it takes some time to make it. Eventually I'll get to that and share it on here because it's not hard, just a touch time consuming.
Funny thing is that when I watch cooking shows, they pull out the store-bough puff pastry sheets, so it can't be that bad (although the homemade definitely tastes better).
Anyway, this recipe is just three ingredients. That's it. These French beauties will have you swooning. They're fancy enough for the best dinner party or brunch but they're perfect for a football game or a lazy Sunday in your PJs. So go, buy some puff pastry. You will thank me.

1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
Mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle about half of it on a clean counter. Unfold the puff pastry sheet on top of it. Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar on top of the pastry sheet and rub it in. Flip it over and make sure that the cinnamon sugar is rubbed into the whole pastry. Sprinkle any additional cinnamon sugar on the top.
Roll the left and right sides (long sides) in toward the middle, jelly roll style, until they meet (should look like the picture above but unbaked). Slice the rolled pastry into 1/2 inch slices and lay flat on the pan, leaving about 2 inches between the pieces.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges are browned and middles are cooked. Let cool slightly before serving.
