Quick Twists Recipe

Hello Lovelies, 

It's a quick impromptu post this evening. Although I am trying to shift the baby weight I couldn't help but have a go at a spot of baking. I had seen the recipe for Cinnamon Twists on a few blogs, I also had a quick look on pinterest as well. I have become slightly obsessed with pinterest my user name is Missbeth90 if you want to follow me (cheeky I know ). 

So I thought I would do my own quick twist on the recipes that I had seen (see what I did there hehe). To make it quicker I didn't make my own puff pastry I bought some in, didn't think that I would have the time to make it with having a new born. 

Here's a quick step by step for each recipe.

Preheat the oven at 200 degrees C for both recipes.

The ingredients that I used are:
  • Jus-Rol low fat puff pastry 
  • Nutella 
  • Butter (around 100g)
  • Cinnamon (2 tablespoons ish)
  • Granulated Sugar (3 tablespoons ish) 

Nutella twists: 
  • Cut off around 1/4 of the pastry which is already rolled
  • Spread as much nutella as you want on 1/2 of the pastry leaving the other half plain 
  • Fold pasty over so the nutella is sandwiched 
  • Cut into 1" (ish) thick stripes 
  • Then twist holding both the top and bottom of each strip   
  • Bake in the oven for 10-15 mins or until golden brown 
Cinnamon Twists:
  • Melt the butter either in a pan or a microwavable bowl in the microwave
  • Brush the butter (leave a little for the top) over the remaining pastry
  • Mix sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl
  • Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the butter (again leaving some for the top)
  • Cut pastry into strips and twist. I didn't fold it this time to make them longer. 
  • Brush the tops of the twists with butter and sprinkle the remaining sugar and cinnamon.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins or until golden brown   

Let me know if you have a go or have any other ideas for fillings. 

Enjoy!! :D
