Yield:
18 turnovers

Ingredients

  • 1 17.3 ounce package frozen puff pastry sheets (2 sheets), thawed according to package directions

  • cup mascarpone cheese or cream cheese, softened

  • cup strawberry jam

  • 4 ounce milk chocolate, chopped

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 tablespoon sliced almonds

  • Coarse sugar

  • 2 ounce milk chocolate, melted (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°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.

To Make Ahead:

Prepare as directed through Step 2. Place triangles in a single layer in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Continue as directed in Step 3.
