Caramel Cinnamon Sticks

This recipe is something sweet and easy for the bread lover in you.  It uses one of my favorite ingredients, frozen Puff Pastry sheets.  Almost all the work is done for you. You only need 5 ingredients and people will think you fussed for hours.

1 Box of frozen Puff Pastry Sheets
1 cup caramel sauce
1 tsp. Kosher salt
2 tbs. cinnamon and sugar mix (4 parts sugar and 1 part cinnamon)
1 egg

Roll out each thawed pastry sheet so they’re the same size.  On one of the sheets, pour about 1 cup of the caramel sauce.  Brush the caramel evenly onto the pastry sheet and top it with the other pastry sheet.

Brush with egg wash (one beaten egg and a bit of water).

Sprinkle a tiny bit of Kosher salt on top of the egg wash and then sprinkle the top with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Spread it out evenly with your hands.

Slice the sheets into about 1/4″ slices and twist together.  I use my pizza cutter.

I always have cinnamon and sugar mixture already made for my cinnamon toast lover Sal (made cinnamon toast for him yesterday for breakfast) and since Sal is with me this weekend, decided to make these with him today.  Easy enough for an 8 year old to do.

Bake them at 350 degrees for about 12 to 15 minutes, until they’re golden and puffed.

Your house will smell wonderful and your family will have a treat warm out of the oven that they will love you for. 

Have a great day, be happy and may God bless you and yours.  

PS.  Sal says it would be better if we had caramel dipping sauce to dip them in.  We only had a 1/2 a jar so didn't have any more for dipping.  Next time I will make sure we have a full jar.
