Easy Puff Pastry Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Cinnamon rolls

This is a really quick and easy version of the cinnamon bun or cinnamon roll. Using puff pastry instead of the bread dough saves a lot of time and effort. And it produces a different result. The rolls are crispy and buttery. And probably more tasty, but that’s debatable.

I also added chopped almonds and raisins to one batch. Nuts added crunch to the already crunchy puff pastry.

I used a square 10cm x 10cm sheet of pastry and ended up with mini cinnamon rolls. You can use a much larger sheet to get larger (or more normal sized) rolls.

Recipe for the filling came from an earlier recipe I posted for cinnamon buns.
Puff pastry

For the filling
50 g butter or margarine
50 ml sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Chopped dried fruits and nuts (optional)

  1. Buy puff pastry, or make it if you wish. If frozen thaw it
  2. Mix the ingredients for the filling together
  3. Spread onto the puff pastry, as little or as much as you like
  4. Roll up, cut into pieces
  5. Bake at 200˚C / 390˚C until the puff pastry is golden brown and delicious, about 20 minutes. Since I made mini rolls they baked faster. Bigger (or normal!) sized rolls will take longer to bake but mini rolls are faster to eat.

    1. It's nice to know that such a favorite treat can happen in less time :-) Very nice.

    2. It sounds really easy and good. Reminds me of some savoury snacks I make with puff pastry... I must post the recipe one day!

    3. What a cool quick way to make cinnamon rolls :) I wish we could buy puff pastry here!

    4. Thanks for sharing this recipe. How far apart do you put these on the baking sheet?

      1. Thanks for visiting. Unfortunately I don't remember now how far apart they were. Perhaps leave about 2 inches - that should be enough
