Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (17.3 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (2 sheets)

  • 1/2 cup canned almond filling

  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Directions

  1. Thaw the pastry sheets at room temperature for 40 minutes or until they're easy to handle. Heat the oven to 400°F. Stir the almond filling and cinnamon in a small bowl. Unfold the pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Cut each pastry sheet into 4 (about 5-inch) squares.

  2. Spread 1 tablespoon almond mixture on each pastry square to within 1/4-inch of the edge. Fold the pastry squares over the filling to form a triangle. Starting at the wide end, roll up the pastry triangles toward the point. Place the pastries, point-side down, on a baking sheet. Curve the ends of the pastries inward to form a crescent shape. Brush with the egg.

  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are 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.
