Cardamom is one of my favorite spices. I can’t think of a more aromatic, sensual spice that enhances the flavors of savory & sweet dishes. Cardamom + Cinnamon = well that’s just a match made in tastebud heaven! These sweet little Cardamom Cinnamon rolls are wonderful when served with a cup of masala chai! I drizzled warm Nutella on them but they are great plain as well.

Ingredients

¼ cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed but cold
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled
¼ teaspoon roughly ground cardamom

3 tablespoons Nutella

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Mix together the sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt. Unroll the sheet of puff pastry. With a pastry brush lightly brush pastry sheet with melted butter. Spread sugar-cinnamon mixture on pastry sheet evenly. Use the remaining butter to grease a 12 cup muffin tin. Roll up the sheet of puff pastry into a log & cut into 12 cinnamon rolls. Place one roll in per muffin cup. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Using a butter knife, lift the cinnamon rolls out of the muffin cups and onto a wire rack to cool. Meanwhile heat Nutella in microwave for 30-40 seconds until thin. When rolls are cool, drizzle chocolate over the top of the cinnamon rolls.

Recipe yields about 10-12 rolls.
