Worlds Most Precious Cookies.

Um. Maybe not the MOST precious, but I think they're pretty adorable tea/coffee cookies (with the exception of my unhealthy love for madelines). You know when you're going to a friends for brunch/lunch and you don't want to come empty handed but REALLY don't have to make something? Throwing store-bought cookies onto a platter does not count, my friends. Make these. Really. Do it. Alls you need is puff-pastry and sugar. They're so cute and girly and the perfect thing to make in under 20 minutes.

You need:
2 sheets puff pastry
1/2 cup sugar
and cinnamon if you'd like (and I like!)

Thaw 2 sheets of pastry. Cover your cutting board with sugar and cinnamon.

Roll out our puff pastry and flip it a few times to get it nice and coated. 
Starting on one end, roll the dough inwards toward other side. Do both sides, rolling 1/2" at a time. (does that make sense? i hope so)

Keep on' rollin until the two sides are touching and look kinda like a pinwheel. 

Using a very sharp knife (and I mean very, people! otherwise they'll kinda fall apart). Cut roll crosswise into 1/4" to 1/2" slices. Now, don't be discouraged, they look a little sad when they're cut. But they come out super cute. 

Cook at 375 for 18-22 until they're nice and puffed and golden on the bottom. 

See? Told you. So cute. You know what else is cute? My new sweater.
