This past week I was invited to a Puff Pastry Ladies Night with a handful of other bloggers to experience how easy it is to make lots of great food for entertaining with Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry.  They sponsored the party and the following recipe that I created for you guys! Photo Jan 22, 7 24 35 PM copy

We feasted on some savory and sweet creations. I love how versatile Puff Pastry can be in creating something for everyones taste. Not to mention that it is easy to use. Thaw, create and bake for 15 minutes and you have the perfect appetizer. The Puff Pastry website has a ton of great recipes to help with entertaining ideas. Our ladies night was also a game night. We played bingo and a silly chalenge to see what was in everyones purse.Puff Hazelnut Chocolate Raspberry Pastries

I hadn’t seen the new Puff Pastry Cups yet so it was neat seeing them and how easy it is to fill them with anything like chicken pot pie, fruit and whipped cream. I brought some of the Puff Pastry Sheets home to make my own recipe. This close to Valentines Day I decided to make some heart shaped pastries. Puff Hazelnut Chocolate Raspberry PastriesPepperidge Farm Puff Pastry is made with the same basic ingredients as pie pastry, but the dough is folded multiple times to create layers. When baked, steam makes the layers rise about 8 times higher. After the sheets thawed I unrolled the sheet and used a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut the hearts and place them on a slipmat.

I then topped each heart with a 1/2 teaspoon of homemade hazelnut spread in the center of each heart. I decided to use raspberries as my fruit because they are my favorite. They are more bitter though so if you prefer a sweeter fruit I would go with a strawberry or a peach even. I cut the raspberries in half and placed the inside facing down in the hazelnut spread. I only needed two raspberries per pastry. 

Before baking I brushed the heart with egg wash (scrambled egg) then sprinkled them with raw turbinado sugar. I baked the hearts for 15 minutes at 400 degrees and they were perfectly golden brown and flaky. Puff Hazelnut Chocolate Raspberry Pastries

I allowed the pastries to cool and tested them out. So easy to make and so yummy to eat, they would be perfect for a Valentines get together. Instead of a plain cookie or cake you get a flaky crunch that balances the flavors. Puff Hazelnut Chocolate Raspberry Pastries

If you find that the raspberry is too bitter you can  sprinkle a little bit of powdered sugar on top of the pastries or create a glaze to drizzle over them. Puff Hazelnut Chocolate Raspberry Pastries
