Favorite Things Friday: Chocolate Crossaints

I love this little French bistro in Columbus called La Chatelaine. When I was pregnant with Grace I used to crave thier soup and sandwiches. But, the thing they REALLY excel at? Pastries. Oh my. They have a pistachio crossiant that is to die for! They also have an excellent chocoate crossaint. The pistachio crossiant was a little lofty for me to strive for, so I decided to try the chocolate crossaint. This recipe is easy and....yummy!

You'll need:
A package of puffed pastry
Sea Salt
Egg Wash

(sorry about the poor quality pictures, we were having lighting issues!!)
Cut the sheet of puffed pastry into squares.

Put one teaspoon of nutella on it and roll it up, like so.

Put it on the baking sheet, brush on egg wash, and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake at 400 degrees for 18 - 20 minutes.

Yum! I think I can find all the ingredients here! Once I get the mud out of the little slots in my oven, (it only heats up to 250 now) I'm definitely going to try this for Mark. he'll love it. :)Did you mean triangles instead of squares?
