Hazelnut Chocolate Praline Turnovers
Hazelnut Chocolate Praline Turnovers
Method
  • Preheat oven to 190* C (374* F) Fan.
  • You will need 2 pastry bags.
  • Fill one with the cream cheese and the other with the hazelnut chocolate praline spread.
  • Spread out the first sheet of puff pastry and dust both sides with some flour. Cut in to four equal sized pieces in a crisscross manner.
  • Place one of the pieces over the handle of a wooden spoon and fold in half.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the dough in to thin strips all the way to the middle.
  • Brush off any excess flour.
  • Cut the tips off of the pastry bags.
  • Pipe out 2 lines of the chocolate praline in the middle of the dough, leaving enough space for another line in between them.
  • Pipe a line of the mascarpone in between the 2 lines of chocolate praline.
  • To close, fold the strips over the filling, one at a time, creating a type of braid.
  • Do not fold over too tightly. Leave some air between so that the steam created when baking can escape, or else the puff pastry will crack open.
  • Fold over the edges to close and press down with a knife to make sure it is securely sealed on both sides.
  • Carefully transfer to baking pan. You can carefully place your knife underneath the turnover and transfer.
  • Repeat the same process for the rest of the puff pastry.
  • In a small bowl, lightly whisk 1 egg yolk with 1 teaspoon of water and brush over turnovers.
  • Sprinkle with coarsely chopped hazelnuts.
  • Place baking pan on the highest rack in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes, until golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and serve.
Tip
If the puff pastry is fresh, you can freeze the turnovers and bake them any time you want!
