Quantity: A cookie tray full (about 20 in total)
- 150g All purpose flour
- 100g Cold butter
- 50g Cold water
- 65g Brown sugar
- 20g Melted butter
- 1tsp Cinnamon
- Make the pie dough first. Cut cold butter into small cubes and rub into flour, making a sandy consistency. Mix the water in and barely knead together before dumping onto plastic wrap and pressing into a square. This will hydrate more as it rests.
- Rest in the fridge for an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 400F and start making the filling by mixing the brown sugar and cinnamon together with just enough melted butter for it to form a sandy consistency. If you add too much butter, it just melts out.
- Roll the pie dough out to about a mm thick and spread on some melted butter. Cover the dough with the filling (skipping the bottom inch or so) and roll into a log.
- Cut into small rolls about a cm thick and bake at 400F for 15 minutes.
The original recipe that my mom uses just spreads melted butter and tops it with cinnamon and sugar, but I find that by mixing the butter in with the sugar you get a more concentrated flavour in the filling. Probably its just more sugar.
To make into Nun's Kisses, make a glaze with a cup of icing sugar and just enough water to make a thick paste. Drizzle on top or dip the rolls in the glaze and you're done.
