Chocolate Turnovers

Several times a week, my sweets-loving husband will ask for a dessert. It's fun to try new recipes or make old favorites, but when I just don't feel like baking, mixing, or dirtying up the kitchen, puff pastry is awesome. So simple yet wonderful--like comfort food. And you can fill it with anything on hand--jam, fruits, chocolate. These turnovers are filled with left-over chocolate ganache that's been camped out in the fridge and brushed with an egg wash. Puff pastry is even good without a filling. Make quick cut-out cookies and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Yum!! And leftovers are the perfect breakfast treat. I love puff pastry!!
