Cinnamon Sticks with Raspberry Dip

Before I even started making the dip, I already had a few one or two of these sticks. The recipe is so simple, but the result is outstanding.

The only thing which takes a bit of time, is the defrosting of the Puff Pastry !  Once, that is done, you can enjoy these sticks within 30 minutes.... or bake them a day or so before you want to serve it, keep in an airtight container and it will still be good after 2 - 3 days.

Make the dip about 30 minutes before serving  {takes 5 minutes!}

Cinnamon Sticks with Raspberry Dip

{makes approx. 20 sticks}

1 roll Frozen Puff Pastry, defrosted
1 Egg, beaten
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
1 TB Ground Cinnamon
Icing Sugar, to dust

1 cup Fresh Raspberries
250g Creme Fraiche
1/4 cup Caster Sugar
1 or 2 Fresh Raspberries, to decorate {optional}

Cinnamon Sticks

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - line two baking sheets with baking paper.
2.) Roll out the Puff Pastry - brush the beaten Egg all over the pastry.
3.) Sprinkle the Caster Sugar over the pastry followed by the Cinnamon.
4.) Take the one side of the pastry and fold over the other half to form a square - roll lightly to compress layers.
5.) Cut the pastry into 1 1/2 centimeter strips - pinch the ends to close and twist - place onto the baking sheets.
6.) Bake 15 minutes - then reduce heat to 180 deg C (350 deg F) and bake a further 10 minutes until puffed and golden brown - remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack - dust with Icing Sugar.

Raspberry Dip

1.) Chop the Raspberries {almost to a mash} - a hand blender works perfectly.
2.) Beat the Creme Fraiche lightly with a fork and add the Raspberries and Caster Sugar - mix well and pour into a serving bowl - decorate with fresh Raspberries {if using}

Serve the Cinnamon sticks with the Raspberry dip.

Hope you will enjoy !
