Spice puffs are a spicy treat. If you thaw the puff pastry overnight in the refrigerator, you can make these cute and flavorful treats very quickly.
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ package (8.7 ounces) puff
pastry, thawed to room
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Oil 3 baking sheets. Combine the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl.
Divide the puff pastry lengthwise into 3 sections along the creases, according to the way it is folded in the package.
Roll out the puff pastry on a flat surface using a floured rolling pin. Turn it over and roll the other side.
Cut each section of the puff pastry widthwise into 7 strips, each strip 1 inch wide. Sprinkle a heaping ½ teaspoon of the spice mixture across the length of the strip.
There are three ways to shape the pastry: (1) Fold each strip in half, with the filling in the center, and twist it. (2) Roll up each strip from end to end. (3)
Fold each strip into a triangle by folding in a corner, then folding it in again (over itself) in the opposite direction, and continuing the process until you reach the end of the strip. Sprinkle the remaining spice mixture over the top.
Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until the puffs are a light golden brown and fully puffed. Cool on plates.
