Fast croissants filled with Nutella are a practical and quick way to use puff pastry to make delicious puff pastry croissants!
Do you have a roll of puff pastry left in the fridge that you don't know what to do with? Are you in the mood for something sweet but don't want to spend hours in the kitchen?
Well, these miniature puff pastry croissants are what you're looking for!
Italians have croissants for breakfastl, but you can make this pastries for any occasion, especially when you don't have enough time to bake something!
These croissants can be filled up with any spread you prefer: here is the recipe for chocolate-filled (read: Nutella) ones.
for 12 servings
Unroll the round puff pastry. Using a knife, make a cross cut to divide the puff pastry into 4 identical parts. Divide each quarter into 3 smaller wedges.
Make a small incision on the edge of each slice, centrally. The cut will help us later to turn the tips of the croissants more easily to give the classic croissant shape.
Place half a teaspoon of chocolate spread (or Nutella), in the center of each wedge.
Spread the incision out slightly, and then begin rolling each slice from the widest side (not the tip).
Continue to roll gently, without pressing the puff pastry (it doesn't matter if you feel like you rolled it too wide)
Finish rolling and position the croissant so that the tip goes slightly underneath.
Place the baking paper with the sweet puff pastry croissants on the oven tray.
At this point try to slightly curve the ends of the croissants with puff pastry (do this in the direction of the tip of the dough).
Brush the puff pastry croissants with milk or water in which you have dissolved a little sugar and drop a little more sugar on the surface
This is not necesasry, but puff pastry is not sweet and therefore we suggest doing so.
Bake at 180° for about 25/30 minutes.
