Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp. water

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

  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 350°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 16-inch square. Cut the pastry square into 8 (8 x 4-inch) rectangles. Cut the rectangles diagonally into 16 triangles. Arrange about 2 teaspoons chocolate chips down the center of each triangle. Starting at the wide end, roll each triangle up, bending the edges in to form a crescent. Place the pastries seam-side down on a baking sheet and brush with the egg mixture.

  3. Bake the pastries for 20 minutes or until they're golden brown.

Tip

Heat is the enemy of Puff Pastry—it handles best when cold. So avoid working with it on hot, humid days, in a stifling hot kitchen or next to your oven.

When serving Puff Pastry, cut with a serrated knife for the most even, attractive presentation.

Puff Pastry can puff up to 8 times its original thickness. That means even a sheet rolled to a thin ¼-inch thickness will rise 2 inches.

Use a marble pastry board to help keep Puff Pastry cold while rolling and cutting.

"I am not a dark or milk chocolate fan but my husband and daughter love it!! I did try one though and think it is pretty good. Not easy to get a 16-inch square but did my best and got 12 crescent out of 16, but still pretty easy to make."

"I am not a chocolate fan but my husband and daughter love it!! I did try one though and it was pretty good. I could get only 12 crescent wraps instead of 16, not easy to make a 16-inch square."
