  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Sprinkle a surface with 1/4 cup sugar; unfold puff pastry sheet on surface. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar. Roll into a 14x10-in. rectangle. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar to within 1/2 in. of edges. Lightly press into pastry.
  2. With a knife, very lightly score a line crosswise across the middle of the pastry. Starting at one short side, roll up jelly-roll style, stopping at the score mark in the middle.
