Almond Nutella Pastry

Well my friend Sheryl at Lady Behind the Curtain is at it again. She is having another little recipe challenge. Sheryl picks a couple of ingredients and we have to develop an original recipe using the two main ingredients. You may remember the last one with cherries and chocolate?

This time Sheryl picked puff pastry (yay!) and almond paste (huh?) I have never cooked with almond paste, so this was kind of fun.  Here is what I came up with:

Easy Almond Nutella Pastries #simple #dessert

 Almond Nutella Pastries

1 package puff pastry sheets

2 oz almond paste

1/4 cup Nutella hazelnut spread

1 egg

2 tablespoons sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Thaw pastry sheets per package directions.

Using a grater, shred 2 ounces of the almond paste. Set aside.

Using a cookie cutter or a glass, cut circles out of the thawed pastry.

Place half of the circles on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Spread Nutella spread on each circle.

Sprinkle each circle with almond paste shavings

Top each pastry with a second circle.

Pinch sides together with a fork.

Brush each pastry with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.

Cut a little opening at the top of each pastry before setting in the oven.

Bake 15 -17 minutes . These were so good. I ate one before I finished writing this post. I will be using almond paste again.

Really soon.

  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.
