Ingredients

  • 1 package puff pastry dough
  • 1/3 cup softened cream cheese
  • 1 Tbs cinnamon
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 Tbs butter melted
  • Cinnamon and sugar to top them optional

Chocolate Ganache

  • 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  • Lay puff pastry dough out in sheets, and use a pizza cutter to cut into even strips about 1 inch wide and 2 inches long.
  • Using a hand mixer, mix cream cheese, cinnamon, and sugar together
  • Put a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center of each piece of puff pastry, and fold together, pressing edges together to form pillows, use a little water if needed to seal edges together.
  • Freeze individually on a tray
  • When ready to use, heat oil to 350 degrees
  • Fry for 3-4 minutes (the longer you fry the crunchier the texture will be)
  • Remove from fryer, and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar immediately. Or brush with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar

Chocolate Ganache

  • In a microwave safe bowl heat cream and butter for about 2 minutes
  • Stir in both types of chocolate chips, and keep stirring.
  • If the chocolate chips do not melt entirely, heat in 30 second intervals, and stir between until melted, this should really only need to be done once, maybe twice.

Notes

You can find the puff pastry dough in most grocery stores in the refrigerated or freezer section, usually by the pies.
