What's in my cookie jar? : A little coffee shop love at home

We are a coffee shop kind of family. There is nothing we like more on a free morning than to go sit enjoy a coffee or hot cocoa together. But, not every day can be that way unfortunately. This is one of those great recipes you can throw together if you have a well stocked pantry and enjoy a "coffee shop" morning at home. And it can be done the night before or last minute when you find you have a morning or mid-afternoon guest over. Does it get any easier? I think not.

Petits Pains au Chocolat
Recipe adapted from epicurious


2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed, each sheet cut into 12 squares
1 large egg beaten to blend with 1 water
Chocolate chips
Kosher salt 

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Brush top of each puff pastry square with egg glaze.
  4. Place 1T chocolate chips on edge of 1 pastry square. Roll up dough tightly, enclosing chocolate. Repeat with remaining pastry and chocolate.
  5. Place pastry rolls on baking sheet, seam side down. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover pastries with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Cover and refrigerate remaining egg glaze.)
  6. Brush tops of pastry rolls with remaining egg glaze.
  7. Sprinkle lightly with Salt (you can use sugar here)
  8. Bake until pastries are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
These went so fast, needless to say they are not still actually in my cookie jar! Enjoy!

I'd use nutella on the inside, but then again, I'm always such a sucker for nutella.
