  • Using a rolling pin, roll the pastry into a rectangle, pressing the sugar into the pastry.
  • Flip the pastry, then repeat the process, brushing with butter and rolling in the rest of the sugar.
  • Starting from the shorter edges, roll them tightly towards the middle.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and chill
  • Place the slices on a baking tray lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart to allow for expansion.
