Almond Bear Claws

With the slits cut on top, these Almond Bear Claw 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 confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. 

  2. Cut each pastry sheet into 9 (3-inch) squares. Place about 2 teaspoons almond filling onto one side of square. Fold dough over and press edges to seal. Cut 4 slits about 1/2-inch apart along edge of dough. Curve pastry slightly to resemble claws and place on baking sheets. 
  3. Whisk together egg yolk and water in a small bowl; brush egg mixture over pastries and sprinkle evenly with almonds.
  4. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden. Remove from baking sheets to a wire rack; cool.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk confectioner's sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle over pastries and serve.

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! :)
