Nutella and Goat Cheese Turnovers

  Well, I’m not quite back to my pre-pregnancy body, but for just under 3 months out, I’m pretty happy with how quickly the weight has come off.  My Mr. is doing his best to sabotage my efforts though…look what he made the other night:
  Yeah…Nutella and goat cheese in a turnover.  So much for my decision to skip dessert that night.  He started with this recipe and modified it to use the goat cheese.
Here’s what you need:
1 sheet Puff Pastry, thawed
¼ c goat cheese, softened
2/3 c Nutella
1 Egg
1 Tbsp Water
2 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
  Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.  Roll out your puff pastry.  You want to do this either on a silicone mat or a floured surface so it won’t glue itself to your counter.  You should wind up with an approximately 12″x12″ square.  Cut this into 9 equal squares (approximately 4″).
  Whisk together your goat cheese and Nutella in a bowl until they are smooth and evenly mixed.
Drop 1 Tbsp of the cheese/Nutella mixture into the corner of puff pastry. Leave a small edge on the puff pastry so when you fold the squares over the edges can be crimped together. Fold the opposite side of the square over the Nutella/cheese mixture. Seal the edges together.
  Place the turnovers onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone baking sheet.  Whisk together your egg and water to make an egg wash. Brush each turnover with the egg wash.
Place your turnovers in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes. Move them to a wire rack to cool when they are done cooking. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top and serve warm.  Attempt to not eat 15 in one sitting.  Fail miserably (just me?).
  Gah…I don’t think I have to tell you that these are incredible.  That man of mine, he’s trouble in the kitchen.  Goodbye willpower, hello yummy.
