With the slits cut on top, these pastries resemble a bear's claw. And you'll need a bear-sized appetite to wolf down these treats because they're made with our signature "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!"

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1 (12-ounce) can almond filling
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut each puff pastry sheet into 9 (3-inch) squares. Spread half of each square with 2 teaspoons almond filling, pressing edges gently to seal. Using a sharp knife, cut 3 slits in top of pastry; curve pastry slightly to resemble claws, and place on lightly greased baking sheets.
     
  2. Whisk together egg yolk and water in a small bowl; brush egg mixture over pastries, and sprinkle evenly with almonds.
     
  3. Bake 16 minutes or until golden. Remove from pans to a wire rack; cool.
     
  4. Microwave chocolate chips in a small bowl at MEDIUM (50 percent power) 1-1/2 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring halfway. Drizzle chocolate evenly over pastries.

Is almond filling the same as almond paste???

No, almond filling has a much more softer spendable consistency than almond paste. You can't substitute one for the other.

could I subsitute another kind of chip instead of choc?

I don't see why not;just try melting them in the microwave,but keep an eye on them in case they melt faster than the ones in the original recipe says.What kind are you going to use?

Awesome... Love Mr Food & His Scrumptious Recipes! :)
