Two sheets of puff pastry(Puff pastries should be kept frozen; take them out of the freezer and place on the counter 15 to 20 minutes before you’re ready to bake)
Almond paste or marzipan(According to Lori, they are pretty much the same except marzipan is just a tad bit sweeter)
Bittersweet chocolate(for this recipe we used chocolate that was 60% cacao)
1 tblspn powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 375F
After slicing the almond paste, move it to the side.
With the pizza cutter, cut along the two creases of the pastry sheet.
After cutting the diagonals, separate the pastries as indicated in the above photo.
Place all of the rolled pastries on to a pan lined with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, add one egg and mix with a fork. Brush each pastry with the egg. Add whatever you would like on top; we put almond slivers on three, and kosher salt on the other three – whatever salt you have is fine, it doesn’t have to be kosher salt.
And there you have it, Lori’s Almond Puff Pastries! These are best eaten right when they come out of the oven. They’re crispy, flakey, warm delights!
Cut the sides as indicated above. Make sure the cuts are slightly downward and that there are the same amount of cuts on each side. You’ll notice that we have eight on one side and seven on the other. It still worked, but try to stick with even amount of cuts on each side.
Just as we did with the previous pastries, brush the top with the egg and sprinkle some sliced almonds on top. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. This one required a little more than the smaller pastries. Place this in the fridge if the oven happens to be occupied by our other pastries.
Here is how it should look when it’s all done!
