Trader Joe's Frozen Puff Pastry (use 1 sheet)
Refrigerated overnight. ( keeping this COLD is the secret to the puffiness of this incredible delicacy) .
Flour a counter or board. Unfold Pastry .
Brush with soft butter .( about 1/4 cup )
Crumble 1/3 cup light brown sugar over the pastry & butter. Make a border of 1 1/2 inches around the pastry. Sprinkle 2 tsp.'s cinnamon .
1/4 cup cranberries or raisins. Roll up snugly . Cut into 2" rounds .
Making 6 Morning Buns
These will go on top of the "topping" ( see below )
" Topping "
( this mixture goes on the bottom of each tin )
1/3 cup light brown sugar ( loosely packed )
1/4 cup butter ( @ room temperature)
Blend the sugar & butter . Spoon 1 Tbsp into each Muffin Tin .
Add some crumbled pecans into each one . Now add to each buttery tin a morning bun pastry.
(when inverted this will be the "topping" )
Note : using a baking sheet underneath the muffin tin keeps this from overspill / burning
Bake at 400 degrees
15 to 20 minutes
Invert after 2 -3 minutes out of oven onto Parchment Paper .
Use of Parchment will absorb any excess butter .
