PETE DE SOEUR (CINNAMON PASTRY)


Pastry Dough

  • 2 cups of flour
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar

Directions

Mix flour and salt together then add shortening.

Mix egg, water and vinegar together. Add to flour mixture.

Mix well but do not over mix, it will make pastry hard. Form two balls.

Roll out flat with rolling pin.

Spread margarine or butter over the dough, and then add brown sugar on top. You want it to cover all the surface of margarine/dough. Sprinkle lots of cinnamon on top of brown sugar and use your fingers to mix it in.

Start at one end and roll up the dough. Cut into 1 inch pieces (or bigger if you want them big).

Place on cookie sheet. I do not grease the sheet as the butter/brown sugar mixture will leak out of pastry so they don’t stick.

Bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes (until tops are brown)

Remove immediately and put on parchment paper, as the sugar/butter mixture will harden very fast.

For chocolate sauce, I melt chocolate chips with whipping cream (approximately
