As soon as I saw this recipe for nutella strudel, I knew I had to try it. What could be easier than nutella and puff pastry? And why had I never thought of it before? Ha ha!
Okay, confession time. I love nutella. But this is the first time I let the kids have any! I wanted it all to myself before this. I'm such a selfish mother! I knew they'd like it. And I was right. I'm going to have to hide the jar from now on!
Here's what you need:
1 puff pastry sheet (there are 2 sheets to a box, so you can easily double this recipe)
1/2 cup nutella
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 TBSP milk
Thaw the sheet of pastry and allow it to come to room temperature. Then gently unfold it. With a sharp knife, cut slits about an inch apart on each side of the puff pastry. The pastry has previously been folded into thirds, so there will be lines to help you know where to start the slits.
Spread the nutella down the center of the pastry and sprinkle with the chopped walnuts.
Now carefully criss cross the dough strips over the top, making sure to cover the filling.
Pinch each end closed. Brush the milk over the top of the pastry.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
Slice into 4 pieces with a serrated knife.
This dessert was fantastic! It's definitely something I'd serve to guests. In fact, this Sunday night after church we're having a dessert party and I'm going to make this as one of my contributions. It will be easy to double and slice into smaller pieces to share.
Would there be anything wrong in making this for breakfast, you think?
