- 1 sheet of puff pastry (thawed)
- 1/2 cup Nutella (or your favorite hazelnut spread)
- Granulated sugar (for coating)
- Powdered sugar (optional, for dusting)
- Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
- Prepare the Puff Pastry:
- Unfold the thawed puff pastry sheet onto a clean, lightly floured surface.
- Cut the pastry into squares or rectangles, depending on your preference and the size of your EaZy MealZ Air Fry Grill Pan, Crisping Basket. Aim for even-sized pieces.
- Fill with Nutella:
- Place a small spoonful of Nutella in the center of each pastry square or rectangle.
- Fold the pastry over the Nutella to create a triangle or rectangle shape, sealing the edges by pressing them with a fork.
- Coat with Sugar:
- Roll each pastry in granulated sugar, making sure to coat all sides generously. The sugar will give the pastries a sweet and crispy outer layer when air fried.
- Air Fry the Pastries:
- Place the sugar-coated pastries in a single layer in the EaZy MealZ Air Fry Grill Pan, Crisping Basket, leaving some space between them to allow for air circulation.
- Air fry at 350°F (175°C) for 8-10 minutes or until the pastries are puffed up and golden brown.
- Cool and Serve:
- Remove the Nutella-Stuffed Pastries from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes.
- If desired, dust them with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.
- Serve Warm:
- Enjoy your sugar-coated Nutella-Stuffed Pastries while they're warm, with a cup of coffee or as a delightful dessert.
These sugar-coated Nutella-stuffed pastries are a delicious treat and a great alternative to using egg wash for a shiny, sweet crust.
