Cinnamon Bacon Puff Pastry Twists


  • Twists:
  • All-purpose flour
  • 2 sheets puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 pounds bacon
  • Glaze:
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Unroll 1 puff pastry sheet onto a floured surface and spread butter over the entire surface.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle over the puff pastry. Place the remaining sheet of puff pastry on top, then seal both layers together with a rolling pin.
  3. Slice the puff pastry in half lengthwise, creating 2 long strips. Slice each strip into 24 vertical slices.
  4. Place a strip on bacon onto each slice and twist the ends, twirling the bacon and puff pastry together.
  5. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 400F for 35-45 minutes, until the bacon is fully cooked and the puff pastry has browned.
  6. While the twists are cooking, make the glaze. Place the cream cheese and butter in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Add the confectioner's sugar and beat until combined. Add the milk and vanilla extra and fully combine.
  7. Once the twists are finished baking, cool them on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then dip into the glaze and enjoy!
