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!
1 package puff pastry sheets
2 oz almond paste
1/4 cup Nutella hazelnut spread
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.
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. By the way, you will be amazed at how great these taste.
Have you baked with Almond paste before? Do you love Nutella as much as I do?
