Food: Puff Pastry Treat

I saw this recipe, which reminded me of something I’d done over a decade ago. When  I found  a packet of puff pastry nearing  its expiration date in my mother’s refrigerator and asked if I could take it home. I had a jar of Nutella (naturally) and a jar of apricot jam. So I layered the puff pastries all buttered up in a pan and baked them in the oven.  Then I cut them into squares the size of brownies, and pulled them apart in the middle to drop a spoonful of Nutella in some and apricot jam in others and served my creation to the family for breakfast.  Rich – sure, tasty – of course, worth the carbs – yes indeed.

But I love what the below recipe calls for –
