Puff Pastry Rose Pops

I am so forgetful sometimes … let me tell you what I did this morning.  I wash and dry my jeans wrong side out … I heard that it helps with fading.  I usually turn them right side out when I put the laundry away … but I didn’t this past time … no big deal … right?   This morning when I got dressed, I put my jeans on … two legs in … pulled up … and I tried to button and zip, which didn’t work … then I looked down … I forgot to turn them right side out!  I could be loosing it … if I ever had it!

Anyway … the point of my story is … while checking out other blogs this morning … I remembered that I wanted to make these Puff Pastry Rose Pops … I almost forgot!  Check out Nifty Thrifty Things … it is because of her that I remembered!

Puff pastry is my friend … a truly wonderful invention … that is so conveniently available in the freezer section at the grocery store!  Just let it thaw and use it for making appetizers, main dishes, desserts or … rose pops … just in time for Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Day or just to say Thank You.

This is all that you will need … puff pastry, cinnamon, colored sugar, parchment paper and lollipop sticks …

Let a sheet of puff pastry thaw on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, sprinkle with cinnamon and colored sugar …

Roll it up …

Slice into 1-inch pieces …

Insert lollipop sticks and bake …

Make some paper leaves with messages on them and tie them on the sticks …

Easy peasy … now how about making some with different colors of sugar?

Puff Pastry Rose Pops

Frozen puff pastry – thawed
Colored sugar (start with 1 tablespoon per sheet and add more if you like)
Cinnamon (start with 1 teaspoon per sheet and add more if you like)
Lollipop Sticks (or wooden sticks)
  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Place sheets of puff pastry on parchment lined baking sheets.
  • Sprinkle the pastry with cinnamon and colored sugar.
  • Roll it up into a log.
  • Use a sharp knife and cut into 1-inch slices (8-9 slices per log)
  • Insert a lollipop stick into each slice … but do not let it come out the top!
  • Bake on parchment lined baking sheet for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool completely and tie paper leaves on sticks if desired.

I am looking forward to your comments !

  1. these look so good and so darn easy to make.
    I use dental floss when cutting things like this. Less chance of squishing down the dough when using a knife. Using dental floss it makes a nice clean cut.

  3. I actually make my own puff pastry. When people order anything with it I cringe… Lots of rolling and folding 😦

    It’s tasty stuff though, I’ll have to give these a shot!

  4. Look, some of us have no idea how much sugar or cinnamon to use. Maybe a teaspoon of cinnamon? These look adorable and I would like to make them but I don’t want anyone to spit them out because I used 2 or 3 times too much or too little sugar and cinnamon. Help those of us out who aren’t such great cooks. Thanks!

  5. Thanks so much for this idea. I made them for all the ladies at church for Mother’s Day. Everyone loved them! I wrapped them individually in pink cellophane, tied on a Happy Mother’s Day leaf, and put them all in a vase until time to hand them out. Not sure how to post a picture.

    Always look forward to opening your blog.
