Mini Cinnamon Rolls


For the Dough

1 sheet puff pastry dough, thawed

2 1/2 tbsp butter

3 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup pecans, toasted and crushed

For the Glaze

1/3 cup icing sugar

2 to 3 teaspoons milk

1/8 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon butter, at room teampature

1/2 teaspoon orange zest

For the Dough

Preheat your oven to 400, then line a large baking tray with parchment paper.

Unfold puff pastry dough (or roll out to 1/8") and stretch to a 10" x 10" square.

Spread soft butter over dough.

Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, then sprinkle cinnamon mixture over surfact of buttered puff pastry.

Sprinkle on nuts if using, or sprinkle on when rolls are baked and glazed.

Press nuts down lightly with palm of hands to help them stick to dough.

Cut puff pastry in two, then beginning at one edge, roll up (not too tightly).

Pinch dough along length to keep it in a roll.

Cut each roll horizontally with a sharp knife into 12 equal pieces.

Turn each mini roll, CUT SIDE UP, on your pan.

Bake rolls for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.

For the Glaze

While rolls are baking, add glaze ingredients into a bowl and stir until smooth.

If too thick, add a few drops of milk, or if too thin, add more icing sugar.

Grate an Orange to make the zest. (Orange zest is optional, but delicious).

Spread some glaze on each mini roll, then if you left out nuts while baking, sprinkle them on top and add the zest too. Enjoy!
