Delicious little sweet treat: pig’s ears aka. Schweineohren aka. puff pastry cinnamon rolls ;) German words for sweets are sometimes weird ;)


1 package fresh puff pastry (roll)
2-3 tbsp. water
1/4 cup (50g) brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


1. Unroll the puff pastry dough from the package and brush with the water. Mix the brown sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle on top of the dough. Roll up from the shorter sides up to the middle of the dough – both sides. Wrap that double log in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for about 1 hour.
2. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line the baking sheet with baking parchment and set aside. Cut the puff pastry roll with a sharp knife into 0.4 inches thick slices – you will see the two spirals, that are connected on one side. Place with some space in between on the baking sheet and bake for 14-15 minutes until golden brown and puffed up. Take out of the oven and let cool down on the baking sheet.


Enjoy baking!
