  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  • In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and butter. You can do this with a hand mixer, but I just use a fork to cut the cream cheese in and it will be smooth after stirring.
  • Lay out the puff pastry, spread the cream cheese mixture over the entire sheet evenly. Mix together the granulated sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle half of this over the cream cheese.
  • On one end of the pastry sheet, start tightly rolling to form a log and stop when you get to the center of the sheet. Repeat on the other side, so the two rolls meet together in the middle. Cover, place in the fridge for 15 minutes to get nice and cold, making it easier to cut.
  • While dough is chilling, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut cookies into about 1/2 inch slices. If they end up unrolling a little, that's fine just roll them back up. Dip each side into the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Place on lined baking sheets about 3 inches apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes until slightly golden brown. Do not overbake, the bottoms might burn from the sugar.
  • Place sheet trays on a wired rack for about 5 minutes to cool slightly. Transfer cookies directly on to a wired rack to cool completely.
