Course Snack


  • 1 vegan puff pastry (I use Pepperidge Farm)
  • 0.5 cup granulated sugar


  • Unthaw the pastry sheet but keep it cold.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar on a working surface. Place the pastry on top. Sprinkle pastry with another 1/4 cup sugar.
  • Roll out pastry into a bigger square. My pastry sheet is 9" square and I make it to about a 12" square.
  • Roll up one side tightly to the center. And then the other side to the center as shown in the video.
  • Freeze rolled pastry for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Slice frozen pastry into a bit less than 1/2" thick pieces. Place on baking sheet with some space between each as the dough will expand.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Flip the cookies. Bake for another 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool completely on a cooling rack before serving.
