INGREDIENTSMETHOD
Ingredients:
  • 1 roll of puff pastry

For the filling:

  • 40 g unsalted butter, softened
  • 100 g soft Demerara sugar
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder for dusting
  • 8 drops Cinnamon Spice Drops®

For the icing:

  1. In a small bowl, place the sugar, Cinnamon Spice Drops® and butter and mix well.
  2. Open out the chilled pastry on a flat surface and spread the filling on the pastry, evenly.
  3. Start rolling up the pastry from the two short sides, simultaneously, until they meet in the middle, like a scroll.
  4. Cut the roll into 16 slices. Pinch the ‘v’ part of the cut pieces to given them a heart shape. Tip: to get 16 even slices cut in half, then in half again (4) and each piece in half again (8) and each piece in half again (16).
  5. Place onto baking tray lined with baking parchment, silicone mat (or lightly greased if you have neither). Bake at 220ºC for 20 minutes, or until the pastry turns golden brown. Allow to cool.
  6. For the icing: Beat the cream cheese until smooth.
  7. Add the icing sugar and Vanilla Spice Drops® and beat until smooth.
  8. Using a piping bag squeeze the icing over the heart shaped buns to taste.
  9. Dust with a light sprinkling of cocoa powder.
