Foodie Friday…

Welcome to Foodie Friday!  

The idea came about because I love blogging and I love cooking.  Why not smash them together? 🙂 Every Friday I will share a new recipe that I have recently tried and thought was delicious!

I am always looking for an excuse to whip up something sweet.  “Taco Braids” were on the menu for Monday, so I decided it was a great opportunity to bake a recipe I had been dying to try:


*Southern Living, May 2011

  • (17.3 oz) package of Puff Pastry
  • (1/4 cup) melted butter
  • (1/4 cup) sugar
  • (1 tsp) cinnamon

1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2) Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray

3) Unfold puff pastry.  Cut sheet in half — then cut each half into 1-inch wide strips.

4) Place on cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes until golden brown.

5) Meanwhile, melt butter in saucepan.

6) In a separate bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon

7) Remove pastries from oven, dip in melted butter, and roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Whoa-la .. a delicious Mexican inspired dessert.  Raymond loved them — he ate about 10 in the first night.  I have never baked with puff pastry before.  It was super easy and delicious.
