Petits Pains au Chocolat

Yesterday we had a family brunch for Mother's Day. Amy had everything laid out to make little chocolate croissants.

Recipe modified from epicurious.com:

2 sheets frozen puff pastry (one 17.3-ounce package), thawed, each sheet cut into squares
1 egg beaten to blend with 1 water (for glaze)
(good quality) Chocolate chips

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Line a single row of the chocolate chips on one edge and roll up dough tightly, enclosing chocolate. Place pastry rolls on baking sheet, seam side down. (We pinched the seam slightly in hopes of none of them popping open during baking.)

Preheat oven to 415°F. Brush tops of pastry rolls with the egg glaze. Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Bake until pastries are golden brown, about 15 minutes.

So easy. I have never made my own puff pastry, but can't really motivate myself to think about it when the result is so delicious with the store bought dough.
