Nutella Pinwheels

Source: via Jessica on Pinterest

My 10 year old was intent on making breakfast on Christmas morning. He wanted to create something resembling a sticky bun... he wanted something cinnamony. He flipped through his cookbooks - Yes, he has several - and found a recipe using puff pastry sheets. It looked delicious and simple enough for him to do alone.

We had an extra sheet of puff pastry dough... and then I got this idea. An awful idea. I got this wonderful, awful, idea! Wouldn't these be simply divine with Nutella inside?


2 frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
Nutella, enough to generously spread over rolled out sheets
Confectioners sugar, optional


Preheat oven to 375

Lay the pastry sheet on your counter, flour side down. Add more flour if desired.
Use a rolling pin to roll out pastry dough.

Spread generous amounts of Nutella to the corners.
Carefully roll into jelly roll.
Cut into 1/2 in slices and place on cookie sheet 1 inch apart.

Place in oven and bake for about 14 minutes until lightly golden brown and puffy.
Remove and let sit about 10 minutes before serving.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar for a festive look!
