Almond Nutella Pastry

This is an updated recipe for my tasty Nutella Pastry – a lovely Nutella dessert! I first made this recipe during my first year of blogging. The pictures are not the greatest, but the flavor and ease of this recipe will have you and your guests wanting more. If you are a Nutella lover, make these soon. The sweet taste of the hazelnut spread and hint of almond flavor are wrapped up nicely in a flakey pastry puff dough.

They are seriously as good as a warm doughnut! Perfect with coffee, milk or tea or even wine as an after dinner dessert idea. They also look really nice on a plate or dessert tray, at least for a short time because they will be gone quickly!

Have you baked with Almond paste before? Do you love Nutella as much as I do?



  1. Thank you for sharing. I love this recipe. Hopefully I don’t hurt myself with a knife. =)

  2. Oh, my goodness, your Almond Nutella Pastries look sooo scrumptious. I love Nutella and having just baked up my dessert for the challenge, my enthusiasm for puffed pastry is renewed =)

    BTW. Didn’t realize the photo of my contribution to the Dessert Challenge and link back to my site couldn’t be included later after posting as in other groups.
    Love to have you take a peek at The Ninja Baker’s Petite Almond Puffs.

  3. Those look really good. Pretty cool to see how everyone used the almond paste differently. I would have never thought to pair with nutella . I will have to try this recipe out!!!

  4. Almond paste – Is that just marzipan? Sounds completely delicious.

  17. You have sold me! I’ve never used almond paste before but I can almost taste it. I think it would really complement the nutella, which is strong on its own, but I like something else to cut through the sweetness.
