Day #3: Nutella Little Hearts

>> Thursday, March 3, 2011

While I was writing this post, I was thinking about my school and college days memories.. In between school n coaching classes we used to get few hrs gap but not enough to go home, get fresh n come back.. So what we used to do is head straight towards our favourite hang-out.. "Satyam Bakery" or "Utkal Sweets" or "Jalaram Sweets n Snacks".. Apart from tasting all types of pasteries, puffs, street food, there were two items which were "The must" for each one of us... "Britannia Little Hearts" and "a bottle of Pepsi or Coke or Fanta"...

A pack of little hearts will have not more than 15 biscuits and costs around 10 bucks, I suppose. This was way too costly to spend everyday with your pocket-money. But when this truly divine sweet biscuit melt into your mouth you usually forget about your pocket-money or those 10 bucks for 15 pieces.. That's the magic of "Britannia's Little Hearts"..

To be honest, when I came to U.S. I realized what's famous as "Little Hearts" is actually a French pastery called "Palmiers".. But still I would like to name my recipe as "Nutella Little Hearts" rather than "Nutella Palmiers"... :D

So, now lets move on to the recipe..


Puff pastry sheet
Nutella - 2 tbsp/ pastry sheet or depends on your taste
Powdered Sugar - to sprinkle (optional)


1. Thaw the puff pastry. Unfold one pastry sheet and roll out with rolling pin, if required.

2. Fold the longest sides towards the center of the sheet. Gently roll the pin over it. Spread nutella over the sheet.

3. Again fold the longest sides towards the center. If you want you can spread another layer of nutella. Otherwise, dampen one side with water, fold it over the other side and gently roll the pin over it.

Do not press hard or else nutella will pop out from the open ends. Cover the log with a plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 1 hr.

Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.

Take out the folded pastry and cut into thin slices.

Place on the baking sheet . Bake for 8-10 mins, or until golden. Transfer to wire rack and let it cool down to room temperature.

Serve & Enjoy!!!
