My Cinnamon Snails, aka Zimtschnecken, use frozen puff pastry. Deliciously simple, these are great additions to your collection of quick Christmas recipes. In fact, these have become regular additions to my holiday baking. Why? Because they are easy. Because they are delicious. And, most importantly, because everyone likes them.
The "American way" to make these cinnamon puffs is to use brown sugar. The "German way" to make these Zimtschnecken is to use white sugar. Try it, I think you'll like it!
Buying and keeping frozen puff pastry in the freezer means you'll always be ready to make these. Follow the thawing instructions on the package. Keep thawed dough in fridge until ready to use.
Don't forget to buy more so that you'll always have some to make these and other quick puff pastry recipes.
Although I haven't yet tried it, using partly vanilla sugar should be really good.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!
Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
