My family doesn’t just hoard pasta- apparently we hoard puff pastry and sliced almonds.
The only thing I could think to do with these two ingredients was to add Nutella. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any (the horror!) so I made a sweet, buttery filling instead.
Puff Pastry with Almonds
One package puff pastry, thawed
1 cup sliced almonds
2/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until dissolved.
Cut the pastry into five or six rectangles. Spread each rectangle with butter mixture and sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
I also made whipped cream out of heavy cream that was about to expire. I never really measure it, I just combine the cream with sugar and vanilla and whip. I did it by hand and it was way better than beating egg whites by hand!
How were they? I don’t know, I didn’t try them. I unintentionally started a no dessert streak and I want to keep it going for as long as possible (or until I buy a jar of Nutella.) My family liked them, though!
