Quick Pecan Bites

This is an easy recipe using puff pastry.I was craving for something sweet and nothing was there.I had pecans and as always went to combine it with my favourite cinnamon and chocolate and made bite sized pecan -cinnamon squares.

Puff pastry sheets: 1
Pecan:1/2 cup
Chocolate syrup(optional):1 tbsp
Cinnamon powder: 1 tbsp
Sugar: 1 tbsp

Thaw the puff pastry sheet as per package instructions.Roll out the thawed sheet into a long thin rectangle on a floured surface.Crush/halve/chop the pecans.I crushed them roughly in a mixer.Mix together sugar and cinnamon.You can actually use any nuts you want,or even a combination of nuts.

Top the sheet with cinnamon-sugar,crushed pecans and drizzle with chocolate syrup.Make sure you use only little amounts of syrup,if you are using it,as it will overflow and make a mess of the baking sheet. Leave out the small border on the sides,especially the longest.Roll from the longest side to form a long cylinder.Seal the edges together so that the filling does not fall out.

Cut into bite sized pieces and put them on a greased baking sheet and bake on a pre-heated oven at 400F for 10-15 minutes.

Another closer look...

Cool for a few minutes and relish.

Sending this off to Hima of Snackorama's Sunday Snacks event,where the theme is Bake It.
