I have several recipes marked in my blog reader that use Nutella. Yesterday, when making my grocery list, I decided it was time to try one of them. I got the Nutella (YUM) and marshmallows and happened to have one puff pastry sheet left from a previous recipe. I cut the recipe in half and made four of the delicious pillow pocket pastries.
I definitely recommend these. I had one for dessert last night and one for breakfast this morning. Why not? 🙂
Nutella-Mallow Pillow Pockets
from Picky Palate
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
1 egg white, whisked with 1 TBS water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the square of pastry into 4 equal size pieces. 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. Then, dig in!
Makes 4 pockets.
