Cinnamon Sugar Butter Braid Recipe


  • 1 Butter braid pastry
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a small mixing bowl, cream together the unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and cinnamon until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg and water to make an egg wash.
  4. Place the butter braid pastry onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Using a sharp knife, make diagonal cuts down each side of the pastry, about 1 inch apart.
  6. Carefully spread the cinnamon sugar mixture over the center of the pastry.
  7. Starting at one end, fold the strips of pastry over the cinnamon sugar mixture, alternating sides, to create a braided effect.
  8. Brush the top of the pastry with the egg wash.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  10. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!

Ask the Chef – Tips & Tricks

Room Temperature Pastry: Allow the butter braid pastry to come to room temperature before baking. This ensures even baking and a flakier pastry.
Use Parchment Paper: Line your baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking and to make cleaning up easier.
Sharp Knife: Use a sharp knife to make diagonal cuts down each side of the pastry. This makes it easier to pull the strips over the cinnamon sugar mixture later.
Creamed Butter: Creaming the butter, sugar, and cinnamon together creates a smoother filling that is easier to spread over the pastry evenly.
Alternating Strips: When folding the strips over the cinnamon sugar mixture, alternate sides to create the braided effect. This adds an extra touch of visual interest to the pastry.
Egg Wash: Use an egg wash to give the pastry a shiny, golden finish.
Cool Before Serving: Let the pastry cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. This allows the filling to set and makes the pastry easier to slice.
