Puffy Hearts QED

As "clean-up" time continues, I am ridding the house of puff pastry and frozen spinach.  Weird combination but that is what I have an abundance of.  I rarely use puff pastry and will buy a package, on occasion, not realizing, I have one in the freezer.  There were those two packages of puff pastry to be made invisible or even better, to be made delicious.

I decided, after researching recipes that use puff pastry to make cookies, I would start out simple and then try something slightly more elaborate.  My first try was the best, sweet and simple.   It turned out to be cinnamon puffy hearts.  They were soft and puffy and the cinnamon taste prevailed making good cookies.  These are a snap to make unless you mind rolling out the dough.

The first box, I took from the freezer, were puff pastry squares.  They were easy to work with and I am glad, they were my first choice.  I lay out the squares and sprinkled with a cinnamon sugar mixture, cut out shapes and baked.  Easy?

 Puffy Hearts


1 box Kineret puff pastry squares
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons melted margarine
(Alter the amount of sugar and melted margarine  or butter to your liking.)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix sugar and cinnamon together.
Sprinkle the entire surface of the puff pastry squares with cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Cut into shapes.  I made hearts.  Make flowers, squares, circles, name it.
Place on parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake in oven for 10 minutes.  Start checking at 8 minutes.  When golden brown and remove from oven and place on wire rack and allow to cook for several minutes.

These are so sweet and delicate, they would be perfect for a tea or to pop into a child's mouth or for me.
