2 T butter, melted
2/3 c sugar
1.5 t ground cinnamon
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, 9 x 10.5 inches, thawed.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil. In a small mixing bowl, combine 1/3 c sugar and cinnamon. Stir until blended. Sprinkle some of the remaining 1/3 c sugar on a work surface. Unfold the thawed puff pastry on top of the sugar with one of the short sides facing you. Generously sprinkle more sugar on top of the puff pastry, and spread to cover. Using a rolling pin, roll out the pastry, continuing to sprinkle with sugar as you roll. Roll out to 10×16 inches. Brush the melted butter onto the pastry. Then sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Press it down evenly. Starting from a long side, roll up the pastry, jelly-roll style, stopping just before the end. Press the edge to seal the seam. Cut the roll into 1/2 inch slices, placing about 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake each batch 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before moving them to cooling racks.
