Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 puff pastry sheets
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 lbs. Smithfield Bacon uncooked

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 tablespoon butter softened
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond or clear vanilla extract optional

Instructions

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Dust your countertop with 1 tablespoon of flour.
  • Lay down the puff pastry sheet on top of the floured countertop.
  • Spread softened butter on top of the puff pastry sheet on the counter.
  • In a small mixing bowl stir to combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on top of the buttered pastry. Use as much or as little of the cinnamon mixture. I use about 1/2 of it and then use the rest later to mix into my frosting.
  • Top the cinnamon and butter with the leftover puff pastry sheet, like pictured. Press down the puff pastry so the two sheets start to stick together.
  • Then gently roll over the puff pastry sheets with a rolling pin, pressing them together and spreading it out.
  • Cut the puff pastry in half the long way, like pictured.
  • Then cut into 24 half-inch slices - making a total of 48 slices total.
  • Grab one slice and spread out to the length of one piece of bacon. Top with one slice of bacon.
  • Top the bacon with one slice of puff pastry, making sure to stretch to the length of the bacon.
  • Then twist the bacon and 2 slices of puff pastry together, like pictured.
  • Set on baking sheet, 12 per pan.
  • Bake 35-45 minutes. *Halfway through baking, I use a paper towel and damp off the twists, to remove some of the extra grease.

  • Remove from oven once the puff pastry is a nice golden brown and bacon is cooked all the way through.
  • Let it rest on the pan for 5 minutes, then gently remove and serve.

Frosting:

  • To make the frosting, beat together cream cheese and melted butter until smooth and there are no cream cheese chunks. 
  • Add in powdered sugar and mix it together by beating on medium-high.
  •  Add in milk one teaspoon at a time, until you get your desired consistency.
  • Pour into a bowl for people to dip their twists in.
