This pandemic has brought out the chefs in all of us…. I hate cooking, but all I want to do is…. Cook…. Because what else can I do? …… And by the way… I’m not too bad!! Really…. I’m not just saying it, the 3 men in my life are living proof…. I mean they are ‘living’- so there’s the proof!
The Nutella Star pastry ain’t exactly a great scientific experiment, but it looks like one, and I can assure you it tastes like one too, it’s heaven for sweet tooth’s like myself (although I really should be taking it easy, especially because all the dentist appointments are canceled at the moment.)
It’s also really quick and easy to make, and the kids will be over the moon, literally it’s chocolate overdose….make it with them, eat with them, stick them In the garden untill the hyperactivity wears off. The weather is on our side people! And just how glorious is the sun at the moment?
So here’s how it’s done:
You will need:
- A Puff Pastry Block ( I have been advised the one I use has alcohol in it. Do check it before you buy it!)
- Greaseproof paper
Is that all? I hear you say…. Yes that’s all folks! That’s all you need to make this tasty treat, and here’s how it’s done:
Cut your pastry block into 4 equal divides
Roll out each divide and cut a circle round each one
Until you will have 4 round pastry circle thingimigigs!
Put the first one on baking sheet on oven tray, and add a full heaped tablespoon of Nutella and spread it round
Put the second round pastry on top and do the same untill all the layers are on…
Once all the layers are on, roll out the pastry whilst still on the tray- try not to let the chocolate out though, it’s just to get it ABIT bigger….
Get a small round cutter and do a indent in the middle on your pastry
Then cut into your pastry up to the indent at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock
Do the same again in between these dents
And one last time in-between the next dents. Remember not to go into the circle
Take the end of each pastry cut out and twist it twice and put it down. You will get the above once all done ( the Boi apparently took a boomerang- of this, yet he didn’t save it 🙄)
And put it in the oven at 170degrees for 15-20 minutes
And here’s the final look. Tada!! Ain’t it beaut? Not just to look at but to eat aswell.
And now I’ll be kicking the kids into the garden and locking them outside whilst I put ear plugs on…. It’s got to be done. We all need ABIT of peace. And I did give them a treat too!
Ah the joys. They are a wonderful bunch when they are far away.
Let me know how you guys get on
Stay indoors, stay safe
Love and Regards
