Valentines Day Puff Pastries

Tomorrow is Valentines Day! These puff pastries make the perfect Valentines Day themed breakfast! They are so simple to make, look adorable, and taste even better!

All you need is:

• 1 box of Pepperridge Farm Puff Pastry (there are two pastry sheets per box)
• Nutella
• Strawberries
• 1 egg
• Cool Whip (optional)

That is it! How simple is that?

How to make:

• Heat oven according to package directions.

• Roll out both sheets of pastry dough on a floured surface.

• On the first sheet, spread as much Nutella your heart desires. (You could substitute for cream cheese or strawberry jelly if Nutella isn’t your thing.)

• On the second sheet, I used a pizza cutter to slice down the center and across 5 times giving me a total of 10 rectangle slices (this varies depending on how big of slices you want to make).• In the center of each slice, do your best to cut out a heart shape (a heart-shaped cookie cutter would be ideal, but a knife will work just fine). Carefully place slices on top of first pastry sheet to create a sandwich.

• Once the two sheets are together, follow your lines with the pizza cutter to form individual sandwiches. Use a fork along the edges to squish the two crusts together until closed.

• Mix the egg with a little water to create an egg wash and generously brush on top of each pastry then bake according to package directions.

• While pastries are baking, cut strawberries in half (after cutting tops off). Once halved, cut a small triangle in the center at the top to form a strawberry heart. Set aside.

• Once finished, let pastries cool for about 5 minutes, then place one strawberry heart in each heart hole. Serve remaining strawberries on side (with or without some Cool Whip).

Enjoy!
