Cook's Hideout: Cinnamon Sticks

July 09, 2011

Cinnamon Sticks

This is a recipe that my sister, who lives in India, wanted me to make since her hubby really likes Cinnamon sticks. I looked for recipes online and found this recipe on King Arthur’s website. Recipe seemed simple to make with very few ingredients that are easily available in India. But she wanted the recipe to be eggless, so I substituted the egg with egg-replacer.

I sent my sister detailed pictures on how to make the cinnamon sticks along with KAF recipe. She tried them and reported back saying that the taste was great. Personally I thought the cinnamon sticks were a little too buttery, but my husband and my BIL seemed to like them. I halved the recipe from the original.

Cinnamon Sticks

All purpose flour – 1cup
Sugar – 1½ tsp
Salt – ½ tsp
Butter – ½ cup or 1 stick (4 oz.), softened to room temperature
Milk – 1tbsp
Egg-replacer powder – 1½ tbsp (original recipe used 1 egg, since I halved the recipe, I used half of the required egg-replacer)
Cinnamon – 2tbsp
Granulated Sugar – ¼ cup
Milk or cream – to brush the pastry

Cinnamon Sticks-Ingredients
  • Whisk flour, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Work in the butter into the flour mixture until it forms crumbles and holds shape when squeezed.
  • Whisk egg-replacer powder and milk in a small bowl and add to the flour mixture and mix just until everything is cohesive.
  • Roll the dough and pat into a 3”x5” rectangle; wrap in plastic and refrigerate it for an hour or for up to 2 days.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out into a 10” x 15” rectangle about 1/8” thick.
  • Brush half of the lengthwise surface (i.e. the 5” x 15” strip) with milk/ cream and sprinkle cinnamon sugar** evenly all over. Fold the unfilled side of the pastry over the filled side and press the edges lightly.
  • Brush the resulting 5”x15” pastry with milk/ cream and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut the pastry crosswise into ½” strips that are 5” long.
  • Hold the strip on each end and twist them to give them the characteristic “cinnamon stick” shape.
  • Place them on a prepared baking sheet and bake the cinnamon sticks for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and after couple of minutes, place them on a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy with your evening cup of tea or coffee.

Cinnamon Sugar
**Note: To make cinnamon sugar sugar, simply mix the 2tbsp cinnamon with 1/4 cup of granulated sugar.
