About Dippable Cinnamon Sugar Puff Pastry Squares

The holiday season is upon us, and in my world, that means only one thing:

Lots of fun foods to feed a party!

Those who know this little food blog are familiar with how much I love hors d’oeuvres. Whether it’s making them or stalking hanging out at a fully decked serving table, there’s nothing I enjoy more than plates upon plates of easy foods you can just grab and go.

And that, my friends, brings me to today’s recipe: these cinnamon sugar Puff Pastry squares.

Puff pastry squares with cinnamon and sugar.

And the best part about this recipe? I was able to throw it together in a flash with little to no prep involved.

The holiday season is all about getting together and entertaining, and while those events can be planned weeks in advance, there are those opportunities crop up when you least expect it. It’s always great to have a recipe “on hand” that you can make at a moments notice, and that’s exactly why I always have a few boxes of Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets in my freezer.

Easy puff pastry recipe idea.

There are so many fun and tasty eats can make with quality Puff Pastry, and these squares are just another great example.

Plus, I love that these fluffy pastries are also fun, because these sugary Puff Pastries are made to be dipped in a fluffy homemade vanilla whipped cream.

And who doesn’t love a good holiday dip? They’re like the equivalent of the water cooler at work. Some of the best (and most memorable!) conversations are had around delicious food that everyone can share.

I also accented this recipe with assorted fruit, but that’s totally optional. Or, better yet, you could add other sweet treats you have on hand that would go well with whipped cream.

Any sort of cookie, finger-food-friendly dessert, or even cut up cake would taste amazing when a dollop of vanilla whipped cream on top.

notes & tips for these puff pastry squares

  • Whipping homemade cream can sometimes be tricky, so I always recommend you use cream that is extremely fresh (just opened for the first time) and that it is very chilled. Either wait to remove the cream from the refrigerator until just before you’re ready to whip OR you can set the cream in the freezer for 15 minutes before use. I’ve also heard of people freezing their whisk attachments or mixing bowls, especially if your bowl is metal, glass, or porcelain. Every little bit helps!

Ingredients 

Puff Pastry Squares
Vanilla Whipped Cream

Instructions

For the Puff Pastry Squares
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside.
  • In a small bowl, beat together egg and vanilla, then set nearby.
  • In another small bowl, mix together granulated sugar and cinnamon, then set nearby.
  • Unfold a puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Brush the egg wash (the beaten egg mixture) on the puff pastry sheet until completely covered. Finish by covering each puff pastry sheet thoroughly with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Cut puff pastry sheet into 16 squares (3 cuts on each side - use the above video as an example.) Repeat step for the second Puff Pastry Sheet. Transfer Puff Pastry squares to prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake Puff Pastry squares for 20-25 minutes or until puffy (usually 1-2 inches high). While the squares bake, prepare the vanilla whipped cream (see below).
  • Let Puff Pastry squares cool 5 minutes before serving.
For the Vanilla Whipped Cream
  • Using a stand mixer (or a hand mixer + large bowl), add powdered sugar, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream. Beat on high until stiff peaks form, about 5-7 minutes.
Putting it all Together
  • Add vanilla whipped cream to a bowl and serve with prepared cinnamon sugar Puff Pastry squares. If desired, serve with assorted fruit (I used raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries) and dust the tops of the fruit and squares with more powdered sugar.
