Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp. water

  • 1/2 of a 17.3 ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed

  • 2 tbsp. raspberry jam

  • 2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.

  2. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry into a 14 x 10-inch rectangle. Spread the pastry evenly with the jam. Cut the pastry in half lengthwise. Sprinkle one rectangle with the chocolate. Place the remaining rectangle over the chocolate-topped rectangle, jam-side down. Roll the pastry gently with a rolling pin to seal.

  3. Cut the pastry crosswise into 28 (1/2-inch) strips. Twist each strip and place them 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets, pressing down the ends. Brush the twists with the egg mixture.

  4. Bake the pastry twists for 10 minutes or until they're golden brown. Serve the twists warm or at room temperature.

Tip

Once Puff Pastry is thawed, work quickly while it’s still cold. You can cut it into desired shapes, then store in the fridge until you’re ready for the next step.

If you don’t have a pastry brush, you can use the tip of a rolled-up paper towel or your fingertip to apply egg wash.

Helpful Puff Pastry tools: Rolling pin, pastry board, sharp knife and/or pizza wheel to cut dough, pastry brush, baking sheets or parchment paper.

For extra-thin, crisp Puff Pastry, set a second baking sheet on top of the filled pastry before baking.
