  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup sugar

  3. Spoon 1 tablespoon apricot preserves in the center of each pastry square. Using a sharp knife, cut diagonal lines from the corners of the pastry to within 3/4-inch of the preserves. Fold every other corner up over the preserves to the center, overlapping the points and pinching to seal.  Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.  Sprinkle with the cinnamon mixture.
