I guess you have gathered by now..after all these years..that I seldom INVENT recipes..rather..I peruse cookbooks..blogs.. jot down recipes here and there and from our daughters or friends.
When I married I knew not how to cook a thing..
But with time a little passion emerged..and I loved filling our home with home made meals..and sweets..I bake many more sweets now than when our daughters lived at home..
Jacques is the sweet eater here and enjoys a bite or two after dinner..
When I saw these.. here..at..Hummingbird High~
I thought he would love these with his morning coffee too..
I usually have Puff Pastry on hand(President's Choice)..I have made my own puff pastry in the past..But now stick to this one for convenience sake.
These are as easy as 1-2-3..your hands will smell delicious..and everyone will agree..these are super good.
Zest of 1 large orange..(I used 2 clementines)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 sheet of puff pastry..mine is about 8x10?..
Preheat oven to 400F
Line a baking sheet with parchment
Mix the orange zest,sugar and cinnamon and rub between your fingers to impart the oils of the zest to the sugar and cinnamon..(Love that..like Dorie with her lemon and sugar)..
spread the mix all over the puff pastry.. and I used my pizza cutter to cut in one inch sections..
you cut again in the middle of each strip starting half an inch from the top and going to 1/2 inch from the bottom..
Fold over and twist using both hands..
Form spirals and tuck under to prevent uncoiling..
Refrigerate 20 mins..
Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.. and sugar starts to caramelize~
I had lovely little puddles on the baking sheet..:)

I say these are simple decadence..because they taste so decadent..yet are so simple..
I must admit..hours later..room temp..they are even more pungent with that great citrusy,cinnamony,sugary taste.
What can I say?
Except thank you to all those that inspire me~
PS I know I posted recently:)
But I want you to enjoy these..now:)
You will want to lick your fingers:)
