Sweet Treat…

These little treats are seriously so easy and incredibly tasty!  My husband as I have mentioned before loves anything that is orange flavored especially one that is in pastry form!  I saw a recipe for a puff pastry cookie with tons of sugar and orange juice that he thought would be delicious.  So I decided to give them a try to see if I could cut down on the sugar and make them a little less horrible calorie wise!

These definitely are not considered a “healthy” option but every now and then we all crave something sweet and a tiny bit bad for you so why not indulge every now and then!  The ingredients are very simple and all you will need to purchase is the puff pastry dough.  I found mine in the freezer section and read the ingredients a million times and it doesn’t seem that there are any dairy products listed so I also got to enjoy these treats!

  1. Let the Pastry Dough thaw out until the sheets can easily be separated about 30 minutes
  2. Carefully tear the sheets into three strips where they were folded
  3. Take half of your orange and squeeze some juice on the sheet and then top with brown sugar and cinnamon
  4. Take a cookie cutter of your choice or just cut into squares and layer two on top of each other
  5. Place onto a non-stick baking sheet or line with parchment paper
  6. Place in a 400 degree oven and let bake for 15-20 minutes or when they are golden brown and have doubled in size!
  7. Let cool and enjoy!IMG_0608
