1 packet puff pastry sheets
cinnamon/sugar in a shaker
Defrost a pastry sheet and cut it into 2cm strips. Cut the strips into 2 pieces, one piece longer than the other. Lay the pieces onto baking paper, in the shape of a cross (the longer piece makes the vertical part of the cross, the shorter piece is the horizontal part of the cross).
Now is the fun (kid-friendly) part! Use the pastry brush to "paint" butter over the crosses. Use the shaker to sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake at 180˚C (160˚C fan-forced) until the pastry puffs up and turns golden (5-10mins).
