2010/355: Bonus 2: Nutella Turnovers

Another bonus? Aren’t you lucky?! ;-) Something tells me there are going to be a few bonus posts in the next few days. Guess that’s what happens when you’re late, taking Christmas-themed pictures, or start baking cookies on the Monday before Christmas!

Speaking of baking…. I was making these little Kiss Pies today. I saw the recipe yesterday, and HAD to make a trip to the store to get the ingredients. Would you believe Walmart was OUT of Hershey Kisses??!! Well, not completely out. They had some Kisses with Almonds (Melissa can’t eat nuts because of her braces), Dark Chocolate Kisses (not a big fan of dark chocolate, but I’ll eat it if I have to) and Cookies ‘n’ Cream Kisses (eh). There was one lonely bag of Milk Chocolate Kisses, but that was sliced open, and I wasn’t going to buy that. So I asked Greg to stop on his way home from work and pick some up (he got the Chocolate Meltaway Kisses), and baking these little pies would have to wait until today.

The Kiss Pies were really easy to make, although I did run into a little problem…. some of the pies popped open during baking  (especially the ones where I re-rolled the dough) and didn’t look as pretty as the ones on the Picky Palate Blog. Those were perfect for a taste test, though. The kids were in other rooms when I tasted one, and I shouted: “OMG, they’s awful!!! They’re so gross, I’ll have to eat them all by myself!”
I don’t know why the kids didn’t believe me, because they still wanted to try one… and loved them!
We still had Hershey Kisses left over, and I made a quick trip to the store to get more pie crust, and made some more. Of course then I was out of Kisses, but still had pie crust left. What to do.. what to do? Nutella!! We always have some in the house, so I put a little but of that hazelnutty goodness in the center of the pie crust circles, folded them over, sealed them, and baked them just like I did the Kiss Pies. Soooo good!! Not enough Nutella filling, though. I think next time I will add more, and then top it with another pie crust circle.

  3. You should try them! They are sooo easy to make. Some of mine popped open, but the Nutella stayed put, and didn’t run all over the baking sheet.
    This will be breakfast today :-)

    Those Kiss pies are adorable and look so good! I haven’t been baking since I’ve been ill and figured no one would want what I made but I might have to give these a try tomorrow when, hopefully, I won’t infect anyone. I wish so much that I like Nutella but yuck, I hate hazelnuts.

    • Have you ever tried Nutella? To me it tastes a lot more like chocolate than hazelnut.

    • To be honest, I like the little Nutella turnovers better than the Kiss pies. Too bad I didn’t run out of Hershey Kisses sooner! ;-)

  6. It shouldn´t be allowed to show such delicious looking motives without a warning. I´m so focused on cakes now :-)
