Tuesdays At The Table - Pain Au Chocolat

One of my favorite parts of How to Bake A Perfect Life (review coming soon, I promise) is that there are recipes built into the book.  Of course, I had to try one!  I'll work my way through all the bread recipes, but started easy with these babies.  It's like Paris on a plate.  Really!


Pain Au Chocolat

2 sheets frozen puff pastry (one 17.3-ounce package), thawed, each sheet cut into 12 squares
1 large egg beaten to blend with 1 tablespoon water (for glaze)
12 oz. semisweet or milk chocolate chips

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush top of each puff pastry square with egg glaze. Place about 1/2 once of chips on the edge of a pastry square. Roll up dough tightly, enclosing chocolate. Repeat with remaining pastry and chocolate. Place pastry rolls on baking sheet, seam side down. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover pastries with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Cover and refrigerate remaining egg glaze.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Brush tops of pastry rolls with remaining egg glaze. Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Bake until pastries are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
