Nutella Puff Pastry Twists

DSC_6549DSC_6552DSC_6555DSC_6541 A month ago, I was perusing around Trader Joe’s looking for new goodies to try out.  One thing that caught my eye was the frozen puff pastry sheets (in the ice cream aisle).  I typically make my own puff pastry, mainly because I find that store-bought puff pastry sheets typically just don’t taste as good as an all-butter, homemade version.  What piqued my interest was that Trader Joe’s puff pastry sheets were indeed made with all butter.  HMMMM, I pick up a few boxes to give them a try.  Today, I decided to try out a very simple recipe that takes less than an hour, start to finish.  It’s so ridiculously simple to make, yet looks like something you poured hours over.

Nutella Puff Pastry Twists

  • Servings: 8
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • 1/2 cup Nutella (or chocolate spread)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat.  Set aside.
  2. Unroll thawed puff pastry sheet gently.  Using a rolling pin, gently roll out any creases and make sure it’s uniform in height.  Divide puff pastry into 8 rectangles.  Spoon 1 Tb of Nutella on each rectangle and spread evenly.  Roll it length-wise.  Using a paring knife, cut in the middle along the length of the rolled-up dough, just leaving about 1/2 inch at the end uncut.  Take one end with each hand and twist it together, making sure to expose the Nutella.
  3. Beat the egg in a small bowl.  Brush on a layer of egg wash on top of the pastry.  Sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.  Remove and let cool in pan.
