Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Sift flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, and salt together into a bowl. Cut in chilled butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles small peas. Add vanilla.
Mix in cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough comes together and forms a ball.
Divide dough into 2 pieces and wrap with plastic wrap; chill until firm for at least 1 hour.
Beat softened butter, ¼ cup of sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl to make the filling.
Roll out dough on a lightly floured work surface to ½-inch thickness. Cut dough into rectangles with a knife. Drop 1 tablespoon of filling onto half of the rectangles.
Cover with remaining rectangles. Press edges with a fork to seal. Poke a few holes in the top of each pastry with a toothpick.
Arrange pastries on the lined baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool pastries on a wire rack for about 15 minutes.
