Almost Cinna-Buns

This is a cheat’s shortcut to cinnamon buns but in this case, made with puff pastry.

1 packet puff pastry
125ml cinnamon sugar
egg-wash: 1 egg yolk + 30ml water whisked together
250ml icing sugar

Preheat your oven to 190℃ and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Lay the puff pastry flat on a working surface and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over.
Cut the pastry into strips that are more or less 1,5cm X 12cm.
Roll each strip in its length and place each roll on the prepared baking sheet with the cut side up. (showing the spiral)
Brush the rolls with the egg wash and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
Remove the rolls and cool completely.
Mix the glaze by sifting the icing sugar and adding a few drops of hot water at a time. Be careful not to add too much water at a time as you are looking for a very thick consistency.
Now drizzle the glaze over the cooled pastries and set aside for about 30 minutes.
Keep the pastries in a sealed container.
