  • 1 pkg. (17.3 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp. water

  • 1 1/2 cups raisins

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon


  1. Heat the oven to 375°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.  Place paper liners into 12 (2 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups.

  2. Place the raisins into a small bowl and add hot water to cover.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Drain the raisins well in a colander.  Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and toss to coat.

  3. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Brush the pastry with the egg mixture.  With the short side facing you, spoon half the raisin mixture on the bottom half of the pastry to within 1 inch of the edge.  Roll up like a jelly roll.  Press the seam and tuck the ends under to seal.  Brush with the egg mixture.  Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.

  4. Cut each roll into 6 (2-inch) slices.  Place the slices, cut-side down, into the muffin-pan cups.  Brush the tops with the egg mixture.

  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Remove the pastries from the muffin-pan cups and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Heat is the enemy of Puff Pastry—it handles best when cold. So avoid working with it on hot, humid days, in a stifling hot kitchen or next to your oven.

When serving Puff Pastry, cut with a serrated knife for the most even, attractive presentation.

Puff Pastry can puff up to 8 times its original thickness. That means even a sheet rolled to a thin ¼-inch thickness will rise 2 inches.

Use a marble pastry board to help keep Puff Pastry cold while rolling and cutting.
