Yield: 18 turnovers
Prep 30 mins Bake 400°F 16 mins
Strawberry-Chocolate Turnovers
Ingredients
  • 1 17.3 ounce package  frozen puff pastry sheets (2 sheets), thawed according to package directions
  • 1/3  cup  mascarpone cheese or cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3  cup  strawberry jam
  • 4  ounces  milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1  egg, lightly beaten
  • 2  tablespoons  sliced almonds
  •  Coarse sugar
  • 2  ounces  milk chocolate, melted (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

2. Unfold puff pastry sheets. On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Cut each square into 4-inch squares (you should have 18 squares). Spoon 1 teaspoon mascarpone cheese onto center of each pastry square. Top each with 1 teaspoon strawberry jam. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon chopped chocolate. Brush the edges of the squares with egg. Fold the squares in half diagonally to enclose the filling; press edges together with the tines of a fork to seal.

3. Place triangles 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Prick tops of triangles with a fork. Brush tops with egg; sprinkle with sliced almonds and coarse sugar.

4. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack; cool slightly. If desired, drizzle with melted chocolate.
