Well hello there! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Are you enjoying the warm weather yet? Today is such a sunny day in Portland it’s hard to stay indoors. But I managed to bake these incredibly easy but so, so delicious Nutella Puff Pastry Danishes. Yeap, I fell for it again and got myself a big pack of puff pastry again. It’s just so convenient and easy to throw something together using the premade dough. Take these Danishes. If you wanted to, you could make them with just 2 ingredients, puff pastry and Nutella. I like the crunchy outside that is created by brushing them with egg and sprinkling with sugar creates so I add that, but if you wanted to, you could combine just Nutella and puff pastry.

I wish you could hear the crunch when you bite into these, especially when they’re freshy-fresh! These babies are pretty spectacular, especially given the amount of effort they require! Give this recipe next time when you need a quick treat, but don’t blame me if you get addicted! You’ve been warned 😉

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.

2. If you want to make really puffy Danishes, put 2 puff pastry sheets on top of each other and go over them with a rolling pin before continuing (I am using commercial puff pastry, so it puffs up more than regular Pepperidge Farm brand). Brush the slightly thawed dough with the whisked egg. Sprinkle with half the sugar and cut into 9 squares (3 x 3 squares). To make smaller pastries, cut the dough into 16 squares (4 x 4 squares).

3. Spoon about 1 tbsp of Nutella in the middle of each square. If making them smaller spoon only 1/2 tablespoon on each.  Pinch two opposite ends of each square firmly and flatten the pinched ends. Brush with the remaining egg and sprinkle the tops with the remaining sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes, rotating the baking sheet halfway through, until pastries are deep golden in color.

4. If you want to, you can add 1 tablespoon of nutella to a sandwich ziplock bag, heat it for 10 seconds, snip the corner of the bag and drizzle each pastry with more Nutella on top. Otherwise, allow to cool to room temperature and serve. Be very careful as Nutella inside will be very hot if you try to eat it while it’s still warm.

    If I let pastry filled with Nutella sit oversight, will the Nutella soak through the pastry making it soggy?

    · Reply
    • The Nutella will not soak through per se, but the moisture in the air will make the pastries loose its freshness and become less crispy. If you want to, you can freeze the pre-filled, pre-shaped pastries and then bake them right before you need them, or you can bake them and then just re-fresh them by popping in the oven for about 2-3 minutes at 350F to give them that fresh crispiness.
