Gather the ingredients. Preheat oven to 400 F.
On a lightly floured board or countertop, lightly roll out the thawed pastry dough to about half its original thickness.
Most frozen puff pastry comes as two sheets folded in thirds (like a letter). One of the thirds can be broken off and cut in half to form two pastries. Cut the other two-thirds of pastry perpendicular to the fold, into four sections.
On one-half of each piece, spread about 1 tablespoon hazelnut-chocolate spread, leaving a small edge on all sides. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of chopped hazelnuts on top.
In a small bowl, whisk together an egg and 1 tablespoon of water until well blended to create an egg wash.
Brush the egg wash on the pastry's empty edges.
Fold the second half of the pastry sheet over the filling and use your fingers or fork tines to pinch closed.
Brush the tops of each pastry with the egg wash and sprinkle granulated sugar on top.
Make two slits with a sharp knife through the top layer of the pastry.
Place on a cookie sheet (lined with parchment paper if you wish). Form the remaining pastries.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed.
Serve warm and enjoy.
More Ways to Use Nutella and Puff Pastry
Do You Know the Difference?
All but the filo dough mentioned below are known as laminated doughs because they consist of many thin layers of dough separated by butter produced by repeated folding and rolling. But which is which?
Puff Pastry: Made with flour, butter, water, and salt, this dough is achieved by rolling packets of butter between packets of dough many times by rolling and turning.
Blitz Puff Pastry: This faster version of traditional puff pastry also is made with just flour, butter, salt, and water. It is also known as rough puff pastry or flaky pastry. Some of the butter is incorporated into the dough meaningless rolling and turning is necessary.
Danish Dough: This coffee cake and sweet roll dough are made with puff pastry that is leavened with yeast.
Filo Dough: Although filo dough can be substituted for puff pastry in some recipes, the results will not be the same but still tasty. Filo is not a laminated dough like the others mentioned above. It is made with flour, water, and fat that is stretched to size rather than rolled.
