Prep Time: 15 Minute(s)
Cook Time: 20 Minute(s)
Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients

  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 5 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour
  • 1 (17.3 oz.) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed according to package instructions
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Smucker's® Apricot Preserves
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 to 4 teaspoons milk

Directions

  1. HEAT oven to 400°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with no-stick cooking spray.
  2. STIR cream cheese and 1 tablespoon sugar in small bowl until blended.
  3. MIX remaining 4 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.
  4. SPRINKLE flour on work surface. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on top of flour. Roll into a 12-inch square. Brush with half the butter. Sprinkle with half of cinnamon-sugar mixture. Cut the pastry sheet into 6 equal strips. Repeat with remaining pastry sheet, butter and cinnamon-sugar.
  5. LIFT 1 pastry strip and twist ends in opposite directions until completely twisted. Hold one end of strip on baking sheet, loosely coiling the dough around that center point to create a spiral shape, about 4 inches in diameter. Tuck outside end of spiral under the bottom of the pastry, pressing gently to seal. Repeat with the remaining pastry strips to shape a total of 12 pastries, six on each baking sheet.
  6. SPOON 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture onto center of each pastry. Top with 1 teaspoon preserves and 1 teaspoon walnuts.
  7. BAKE 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes.
  8. PLACE powdered sugar in small bowl. Whisk in milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over pastries.
