How To Make pastry cookies

  • 1
    Heat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • 2
    Stir the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Add the apples, pecans and butter and toss to coat.
  • 3
    Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.
  • 4
    Roll the pastry sheet into a 15x10-inch rectangle. Brush the pastry sheet with water.
  • 5
    With the long side facing you, spoon the apple mixture on the pastry to within 2 inches of the long sides and to the edge of the short sides.
  • 6
    Starting at a long side, roll up like a jelly roll.
  • 7
    Cut the pastry roll into 12 (1 1/4-inch) slices. Place the pastry slices, cut-side down, onto the baking sheet.
  • 8
    Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheet and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar.
