Easy Cinnamon Puffs

*Easy Cinnamon Puffs*
Makes 12

Nothing could be easier.  A lot cheaper than buying the ready made ones in the shops!  So tasty too!  In fact, downright delectable!

1 packet of ready roll all butter puff pastry 
(One sheet, about 15 by 12 inches, thawed if frozen)
softened butter
100g soft light brown sugar (1/2 cup packed)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
90g of milk chocolate chips (1/2 cup)
1 egg yolk beaten with a touch of water

To glaze:
130g icing sugar, sifted (1 cup)
few drops vanilla
milk

Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6.   Line a large baking tray with some baking paper, or two smaller ones.

Unroll your puff pastry.  Spread it all over with the softened butter.   Mix together the cinnamon and brown sugar.  Sprinkle this evenly over top.  Sprinkle evenly with the chocolate chips.   Roll up from the short end, pressing all together tightly.   Using a sharp knife cut into 1 inch slices.  Carefully slide them onto the prepared baking tray.  Flatten each one slightly with your hand by pressing down gently.   Brush each with some of the beaten egg.   Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until puffed and golden brown.  Some of the filling will ooze out, but that's ok.   Immediately upon removal from the oven scoop them off onto a wire rack to cool completely before proceeding.

Whisk together the icing sugar, vanilla and enough milk to give you a thick drizzle.   Drizzle this decoratively over top of the puffs.   Enjoy!

Note:   You can go whole hog with these and add chopped toasted pecans or walnuts, chopped raisins, or cranberries.   Make them your own!
