Pretty flaky

Impress your friends. Impress  your family. Call them pain au chocolate or chocolate croissants. Pardon me, I’m giddy from buying my first package of puff pastry.

You do need to keep some on hand for sophisticated chocolate emergencies.

Chocolate Croissants

1 package frozen puff pastry

1 egg

Some chocolate of your choice or chocolate chips

Thaw puff pastry. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll out a sheet of puff pastry to make a 10″ square. Cut into four squares. Place 1-2 tablespoons of chocolate/chocolate chips into center of each puff pastry square. Brush edges of square with beaten egg. Fold over diagonally to make a triangle, press edges to seal. Brush top of each triangle with beaten egg. Place 2″ apart on greased or nonstick baking sheet. Repeat with the second sheet of puff pastry to make 8 croissants. Bake for 15-17 minutes until golden. Allow to cool on baking sheet for two minutes before removing to wire rack to cool thoroughly.

And then devour.

    Yumlicious!

  2. Puff pastry is one of those things that even if you have gone to culinary school, as I have, you never want to take the time to make yourself. Thankfully we don’t have to. Imagine a hundred years ago if you wanted it.
