Simple and Delicious Cinnamon Sugar Pinwheels


Tracking PixelI love getting together with friends and family and being social. But, I also like to prepare easy and delicious dishes everybody will enjoy. Last week, I had a chance to attend a “Ladies Night” with games and good food. I couldn’t believe how versatile the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry is. This is a sponsored post, but I had such a great time learning about all of the fun ways to prepare Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry and making my own recipe that I would share them with you anyways!

Ladies Night with Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry

I was amazed to see that you can make a savory dish, a meal and a dessert all starting with Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. From chicken salad and bread stick like fingers to elephant ears to hazelnut spread snacks. The possibilities really are endless. I know that my girls would have gravitated to the strawberry shortcake like cups because they love whipped cream and strawberries. The elephant ears are more my thing.

After the Ladies Night, we were given a box of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry sheets to come up with something fun at home. I decided to go with simple, easy and sweet! These cinnamon sugar pinwheels were the perfect thing for me to make with my limited puff pastry skills. They came out perfectly, were flaky and sweet!

I removed the box from the freezer and allowed the sheets to thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes. You want them cool, but not frozen. Carefully, I unfolded them and placed the sheets on a sugared (I used raw, natural sugar) cutting board. I lightly sprinkled the sugar and cinnamon on the top of the sheet and rolled it up jelly roll style. I wet my fingertip and rubbed it on the edge on the inside of the roll so it would stick closed. It was then rolled into plastic wrap and placed back in the freezer for 30 minutes so they were easier to cut.

I baked them for about 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F. Worth noting is that I used cookie sheets that don’t allow things to easily burn. You’ll want to be careful with the sugar on them. Remove, place on a cooling rack and enjoy!

  9. This looks so delicious. I’m going to have to see if I can find these. I think this would be a real treat.

    1. They were kind of hiding for me. I found them on a top shelf in the freezer at Kroger. Near the frozen pie crusts and frozen rolls:)

  10. Yum!!!! I want to eat these right now! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  11. Can we say yum! I will be adding these to our list of things to make when we don’t have school.

  13. Since I am allergic to yeast I have MISSED cinnamon rolls. I mean, a trip to IKEA without a cinnamon roll is like a child being grounded. I LOVE your cinnamon sugar pinwheels that are a perfect substitute for me.

    1. Oh, I can’t imagine…my suggestion? Eat these right out the oven and warm…they are just like a cinnamon roll and still sort of gooey. After resting and cooling, they have gotten a little crispier.

  15. I would love to try these soon!

  16. Pamela Gurganus says:

    These pinwheels look and sound delicious! And they are simple enough I think even I could make them! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  17. Yummy! I am definitely bookmarking this one. I bet it would be really yummy with a few raisins or nuts sprinkled in there too!
    Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Before I did these, I experimented with chocolate. My ratio was off (too much chocolate to puff pastry..I know, too much!) but I added nuts and it was great! I’m not a big raisin fan, but it would totally work!

  18. Gloria Walshver says:

    Great recipe to try.

  19. Now I can’t not try these!

    I love cinnamon and sugar together. I wish I had thought of this recipe. I will be bookmarking this one for sure.

  21. I’m liking this idea, and all the other ones above. I’ve never tried the Pep. Farm puffed pastry. Going to have to give this a try!

  22. I was sitting here craving a snack – yes it’s 3am. But I think I might try this right now. I have some homemade puff pastry and I love anything with cinnamon and sugar. My original plan was to just twist the pastry and then roll it in sugar after baking. Think I’ll do half and half. Either way, my craving will be satisfied. And with your method, I can even add some chocolate chips.

  23. Natalie F says:
