Roll up the 2 longest sides to meet in the middle, creating 2 Swiss rolls joined at the base. Set aside in the freezer until firm, around 10-15 minutes
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
Remove the pastry from the freezer and cut into 1cm thick slices. Lay the slices onto a baking tray and dust with the spiced sugar. Cook for 12-15 minutes in the oven until golden and caramelised on top
