Nutella Marshmallow Puff Pastry

Nutella Marshmallow Puff Pastry
(slightly adapted from *Picky Palate)

1 package puff pastry, 2 pastry sheets thawed

1 Cup Nutella spread

1 Cup mini marshmallows

Egg white wash: 1 egg white whisked with 1 Tablespoon water

Powdered sugar for dusting

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut each square of pastry into 4 equal size pieces (I trimmed mine just a little). Spread a couple tablespoons of Nutella spread onto the center of each pastry leaving 1/2 inch border around edges. Top each with about 12-15 mini marshmallows and fold over to form a little triangle. Crimp edges firmly with the tines of a fork. Brush with egg white wash then sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until pastry just turns golden. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes, sprinkle with powdered sugar then dig in!

ya'll, Picky Palate NEVER steers me wrong! These were absolutely delicious, and like she says, do yourself a favor and head to the store immediately to buy the ingredients (all three of them:) ).

what picky palate doesn't mention is how finicky puff pastry is!! talk about hard work! despite the ugly appearance of some of the final products, they were REALLY tasty and still a huge hit with my coworkers!! i'd make these again, perhaps with pillsbury croissants or biscuits, because they are easier to work with!
