For the pastry hearts:

  • 2 sheets puff pastry dough
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk


To prepare the pastry hearts:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F with a rack in the middle position.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.
  3. In a shallow bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar.
  4. Lightly flour a work surface, and cover it with two square puff pastry sheets. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar evenly over each square pastry sheet. Fold over top 1 inch and bottom 1 inch of each pastry sheet square. Repeat, folding over the top 1 inch layer and bottom 1 inch layer. The two layers should almost meet, but a small gap should remain between them. Fold the bottom half of the pastry over the top.
  5. Cut the layered pastry crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Dip the sides of each piece in the cinnamon sugar and arrange, cut side down, on baking sheets.
  6. Bake the pastry hearts until golden on bottom, about 12 minutes.
  7. Turn over and bake until golden on bottom, about 5 more minutes.
  8. Transfer pastry hearts to a wire rack to cool completely.

To prepare the glaze:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of milk. Use a pastry brush to glaze the pastry hearts.
