Sweets: DIY Cute Nutella Hand Pies

pies 6

Everyone knows that everything is better with Nutella. Pair a little of this incredible chocolate hazelnut spread with puff pastry, and you’ve got a simple, rock star dessert in no time! Here are our ingredients (not pictured, one egg):

leaf supplies

Start by laying out puff pastry on a flat, lightly floured surface, and use any shape cookie cutter you like. I used a fall leaf, since California is just barely creeping into cooler weather and I want to celebrate! Cut shapes and lay flat on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper.

If you put too much, the Nutella will seep out the side, and while that will taste just fine it won’t look as finished. Next beat your egg in a small bowl and brush the edges of your shape with it.

Next, cover each shape with a matching piece of puff pastry. The egg wash will act as the glue here. Gently press down the edges to secure.

Brush the top of your shape with more egg wash. This will give you a golden, glossy finish to your hand pie. Additionally, it will help with our next step…

Add sugar, or sugar sprinkles to the top of each pie. Bake at 350 degrees til light golden brown on top. Time will vary, according to the size of the cutter you’ve used. These small leaves took about 9 minutes.
