How To Make Cinnamon Wreath
You will only need a few basic ingredients – puff pastry, butter, cinnamon and sugar. Super simple and nothing fancy!
First, thaw the puff pastry. I have opted for ready-rolled puff pastry in this recipe. Make sure you check the packet directions and roll out the puff pastry if needed.
Once the puff pastry sheets are thawed, brush them with cooled melted butter. Then, sprinkle with plenty of cinnamon sugar. You can either make cinnamon sugar at home or go with the store bought version. I highly recommend making your own as it’s easy to customize the amount of sugar in the recipe.
To make cinnamon sugar for this cinnamon wreath recipe, combine together sugar and ground cinnamon. Again, as I mentioned, feel free to add more or less sugar depending on the level of sweetness you want.
Now, sprinkle this cinnamon sugar on puff pastry sheet evenly. Next up, roll it tightly from one side and cut in half horizontally. Then, braid the two parts of the sheet and form a circle to resemble a Christmas wreath.
Once the cinnamon wreath comes out of oven, you can decorate it anyway you like with cranberries or mint leaves.
I have also made a simple glaze to pour on these wreaths. It’s a simple combination of softened butter, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract. You can also dip the wreaths in cranberry sauce if you like.
I just can’t wait to make this cinnamon wreath again for my Christmas Day sweet platter!
