  • 14 ounces all-butter puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. 2

    In a small bowl, whisk together sugar and cinnamon.

  3. 3

    Lay puff pastry out on a clean surface so that the long side of the rectangle is closest to you. Brush surface with melted butter.

  4. 4

    Sprinkle cinnamon sugar evenly across puff pastry, then cover with raisins.

  5. 5

    Fold puff pastry in half horizontally. Cut into about 12 1-inch, vertical strips.

  6. 6

    Lightly press down sides of first strip to keep filling inside. Carefully twist strip into a spiral. I found it was easiest to do this while keeping the twist as close to my work surface as possible. Continue to twist remaining strips.

  7. 7

    Carefully transfer twists to prepared baking sheet. Bake twists until golden, about 30 minutes.
