Whew, Here's a new post, finally. I haven't written anything in so long, I feel slightly out of touch with the whole thing. :P So let's start with a simple recipe, shall we? ;)
Back when I was waiting to go home in London, my aunt always always made this dish. Ready-made puff pastry was readily available there, so this is a simple yet nicely impressive (puff pastry always does that to people, hehe) recipe. They're rather similar to Ibu's Puff Pastries from last time, only you "cheat" slightly in this one, and use ready-made sheets, which save you a LOT of work. Really. And now, I've found out that ready-made puff pastries are also available in Brunei at Supasave Gadong, so you can make them here too! Hehe, here we go!
What you need:
1 sheet ready-made puff pastry
Nutella Chocolate Spread
What you do:
- Cut the sheet of pastry in half length-ways, then half again to form squares. Cut each square across the diagonal to form triangles.
- Spread each triangle with nutella spread, then sprinkle with some grated chocolate before rolling them up into croissant shapes.
- Bake at 180 C for 20-30 minutes, or until risen and golden. Serve immediately.
Of course, since these are puff pastries, you *have* to serve them almost immediately. They're edible when cold, but they are a hundred times better when eaten hot. :D The pastry is crisp and puffy, the filling is hot and gooey (almost too hot sometimes, so be careful!). The thing I like about this is that the slightly salty pastry kind of offsets the sweet chocolate. The combination tastes really really good. Sort of like in Honey Chicken, where the salty chicken stock and sweet honey combine to... taste really good, haha! ;)
And um, that's it for now, I guess! A simple write-up for a simple recipe. :P But there's more coming, really!
