Whip Up Your Weekend: Christmas cookies, (WPDE)

It's the time of year for holiday baking. Impress your guests with these three ingredient butterfly holiday cookies.


  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 TB Favorite Holiday Sweet Spice Blend
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted


  • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • Brush the melted butter evenly over the puff pastry.
  • Sprinkle half the sugar on the pastry, then spread it around evenly.
  • 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.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, flipping them halfway, until the sugar is caramelized and the cookies are golden brown.
  • Cool, then serve. Enjoy!
