Most of you know that I am the proud grandmother of the world's
best grandson. Said grandson just so happens to be the only child
of my son, the world's best son.
I know, I know. That sounds slightly prejudice,
but I do have insider knowledge.♥
My grandson and I started spending time together in the kitchen
when he was just a little bitty fellow. Now he thinks his
grandmom is a good cook. You see, there is a method
to my madness.
Today I am sharing a recipe that I knew would be perfect.
My grandson is fifteen years old now,
and he still bakes something after our Sunday Family Dinners.
He has progressed to the point that he doesn't need my help.
It has become a fond tradition for all of us.
Chocolate Hazelnut Crescents
- 1 9-inch pie dough
- 1/2 cup hazelnut chocolate spread (I used Nutella.)
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- coarse sugar
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
Roll out pie crust and slice into 18 triangles, like pizza.
Cover completely with hazelnut chocolate spread. Roll each slice into a crescent, starting with the wide end. Place crescents on baking sheet, leaving about an inch for possible spreading.
Brush the top of each with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until they are lightly golden brown.
Remove from oven and serve immediately.
Oh my goodness!
These are delicious.
They would be good for breakfast or brunch,
and as a pastry or dessert.
