Nutella Chistmas Tree

It is “finally Monday” as we say at work. Time to start a new week with new recipes to try. This is so nice and easy to make that you can like I did, just make it while dinner is cooking.

Ingredients (1 tree):

2 large rectangles rolled puff pastry
1/2 jar Nutella
1 egg, whisked
Icing sugar (optional)
Method:

Preheat the oven to 190c.
Take one rectangle of pastry and place it down with the short side facing you. Spread a thick layer of Nutella over it in a rough triangle shape. Place the second piece of pastry on top of the first, then cut out a triangle shape over the Nutella section. Discard the trimmings.
Now make even cuts down both sides of the triangle, leaving an inch uncut in the centre, to keep the tree together.
Twist each strip from top to bottom to create tree branches.
Brush the pastry with the whisked egg. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until well risen and golden brown.
Once baked, dust with icing sugar and serve up warm.
