Recipe: Nutella Turnovers
Today’s recipe is for all you Nutella lovers out there. (And we know you’re out there.) You’ve tried Nutella on toast, on fruit, on sandwiches, on ice cream, and sometimes when no one is looking, on your finger straight out of the jar. Now it’s time to kick it up a notch with this easy, delicious recipe that puts your favorite spread inside a puffy, flaky turnover. Serve these for breakfast, brunch, dessert, or mid-afternoon snack. Throw some sliced banana, mini marshmallows, or your favorite Nutella sidekick inside and then pat yourself on the back for being a genius.
1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed
1/2 cup Nutella spread
1 cup mini marshmallows (optional)
1 banana, sliced (optional)
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons white sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk egg white and water, then set aside. On a baking sheet or parchment paper, roll a sheet of puff pastry with a rolling pin until smooth and slightly spread. Use a pizza cutter to divide the sheet into six even squares. Spread a dollop of Nutella in the center of each square, leaving a generous perimeter, and top with a few marshmallows or slices of banana. Use a pastry brush to paint a thin layer of egg wash around the perimeter of the square, then fold into a triangle and use the tines of a fork to press the outer edges together. Brush the outside of each turnover with a thin layer of egg wash and sprinkle sugar over the top before baking for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown and puffy. Repeat with remaining puff pastry sheet.
