- Plain flour, for dusting
- 1 quantity home-made puff pastry (see our recipe)
- 75g unsalted butter, softened
- 75g golden caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 60g sultanas
- 1 medium free-range egg, beaten with 2 tbsp milk
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. On a floured surface, roll out the pastry to a rectangle measuring about 30cm x 40cm.
- Beat together the butter, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, then spread over the pastry. Scatter with the sultanas, then roll the rectangle from the short side to make a sausage. Chill for 10 minutes until completely firm. Then, with a serrated knife, cut into 16 x 1.5cm slices. Lay flat-side down on a baking sheet and press them slightly so they spread out a little. Chill for 20 minutes.
- Brush with the egg mixture. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 18-20 minutes until golden. Serve warm, sprinkled with sugar.

- Allow the pastry to chill completely once it has been rolled into a sausage shape – this will make it much easier to cut into rounds.
- Make up to the end of step 2, open-freeze until solid, then freeze in a sealed container for up to 1 month. Bake from frozen (brush with the egg mixture and sprinkle with caster sugar halfway through cooking) until golden brown and puffed up.
