Nutella & Pecan Puff Pastry Swirls

Nutella & Pecan Puff Pastry Swirls

I found a package of Wewalka puff pastry in my refrigerator that needed to be used today so I whipped up this super simple little Nutella and pecan treat for the fam.  I've always been able to get puff pastry from the freezer section of the grocery store, but I hate having to wait for it to defrost, so I was very excited to find Wewalka's puff pastry in the refrigerator section and have used it so much now.  This recipe takes just a few minutes and I'm keeping it on tap for when I need last minute treats or something that takes little effort but comes across fancy for get togethers.  All I can say was that this deliciousness made it a very happy Sunday in my house indeed! 

A couple of tips:
  • If you use frozen puff pastry you will need to take out one sheet and let it sit on your counter for about 30 minutes, then gently unfold it and roll out with a rolling pin to seal cracks and thin it out just a little.  If you use the refrigerated, it's all ready to go!
  • To get even cuts, start by cutting your log in half, then each piece in to half again, then each of those pieces in to thirds!  
Ingredients:
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • Egg wash: 1 egg whisked with 1 Tbsp water
Instructions:
  1. Unroll the sheet of puff pastry into a rectangle. 
  2. Spread the Nutella over the puff pastry, leaving a small border. 
  3. Sprinkle the pecans over the Nutella.  
  4. Starting at the long edge, roll it into a log and gently press/pinch the long edge closed. 
  5. Cut in to 12 equal slices and place on a baking sheet. Brush with egg wash. 
  6. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool for ten minutes then sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve!
