Cinnamon and Raisin Pasties


I love these and I don't make them often enough!  They are so simple, trust me!

What you need:  
A regular packet of puff pastry (yes the packet you'd have with your stew and tatties)
A big spoonful of apricot jam
A small spoon of cinnamon
Raisins (optional)
Icing

What you do:
Roll out the puff pastry until it's a big rectangle, it should be about 3mm - 5mm thick (if you want to be technical)
Mix the jam and cinnamon together... if it's thick then heat it in the microwave for a few seconds till it's easier to spread... then spread all over the rectangle of puff pastry
Sprinkle over the raisins (if using)
Now cut the pastry into long strips and roll up... place each on flat onto a baking tray (line your tray with greaseproof paper).
Spread any leftover jam over the tops before baking
Bake till golden brown (around 10mins)
Once cool drizzle thin icing over the top then MUNCH!
