  • 17.25 oz puff pastry thawed
  • 3 cups granulated sugar


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and coat your counter in sugar.
  • Lay your pastry on top of the sugar and flip to coat both sides. Add more sugar, pressing it into the pastry to coat.
  • Tightly roll one side to the middle and then to the other side. Repeat so that you have a little tube of pastry that looks like a mustache!
  • Slice 1/3" sections and then roll them around in the sugar and lay them onto a cookie sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes until pale brown on top (the bottoms will be darker). Let them cool for 10 minutes and then eat.


Each piece of pastry yields 15 cookies, 30 total.
