What better way to warm up this festive season than by baking some delicious pastries? Fill your home with the sweet smell of cinnamon whilst creating some treats to share together. We’ve chosen to top our rolls with thick caramel, but you could use a thin white icing instead!
350g can ready-made croissant dough (e.g. Jus Rol)
30g unsalted butter, softened
2 tsp cinnamon
6 tbsp soft light brown sugar
Heat your oven up to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas mark 4, then line a cake tin with greaseproof paper, sticking the paper over the corners so that the rolls easily lift out when they’re done.
Unroll the croissant dough from the can and lay it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Then, cut it into three sections along the dotted lines (not the diagonal line) and spread a quarter of the butter onto each piece.
Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl and then, using one square of dough at a time, sprinkle 2-3tsp of sugar over the dough and roll it up. Once you have three rolls, cut each one in half, and then each piece into thirds. Arrange these rolls into two circles in the b base of the tin, spreading them apart as they will rise and spread. Stick the end bits in among fatter pieces from the centre of the rolls so they cook evenly, and bake for 15 mins or until the rolls are risen and cooked through.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining sugar mix with the remaining butter until you have a thick caramel (don’t worry if some of the butter separates out as it will soak into the dough). When the rolls are cooked, pour over the caramel. Leave to cool a little, then enjoy whilst still warm!
