The popular cruffin is a mix between a muffin and a croissant. There are so many ways making these gems. I find this recipe made with all butter puff pastry the easiest and so delicious. A perfect pastry for breakfast. You can find the puff pastry at Woolworths.
1 box of all butter puff pastry sheets (2 sheets in a box)
2 tbsp. butter (room temperature)
2 tbsp. (30 mL) sugar
2 tbsp. cinnamon
2 Icing sugar for dusting
1.Thaw Pastry according to package instructions.
2.Preheat oven to 200°C.
3.Roll out the puff pastry sheets a little bit thinner and evenly spread butter on top. Sprinkle each buttered puff pastry with 1 tbsp. of sugar and cinnamon. Slice down the center to create two rectangles.
4.Create a log by rolling the puff pastry, starting from the shorter end, tightly towards the other end. Repeat with the other pastry rectangle. Slice each log in half (lengthwise) with a floured knife.
5.With the cut end facing outward, roll one end towards the other giving it a slight twist around to create a loose knot. Place pastry knots into a non-stick muffin tin.
6.Bake for 25-30 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Roll them into a cinnamon and sugar mixture while hot.
