How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • Place hazelnuts in food processor; cover.
  • Process, using pulsing action, until hazelnuts are finely ground. Add whipped topping, cream cheese, almonds, icing sugar and citrus peel; cover.
  • Process until well blended.
  • Transfer to bowl; cover.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, roll out each block of puff pastry on floured surface to 14-inch square.
  • Cut a 30-cm (12-inch) circle in each square; place on baking sheets.
  • Discard trimmings.
  • Cover pastry circles with plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Spoon hazelnut mixture onto centre of 1 of the pastry circles, carefully spread to 1 inch of edge.
  • Brush rim of pastry with egg.
  • Cover with remaining pastry circle.
  • Press edges together to seal.
  • Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to neatly trim edge of dough.
  • Cut hole in top of dough to allow steam to escape.
  • Brush dough with remaining egg.
  • Bake 35 min. or until golden brown.
  • Cool completely before cutting into wedges to serve.
  • Ready in approximately 2 hours and 55 minutes
  • Variation:
  • Candied citrus peel can be found in the baking section of most grocery stores.
  • If you cannot find it, use the grated peel of 1 orange instead.
  • How to Easily Cut the Pastry Circles
  • Place inverted bowl on pastry.
  • Trace around bowl with small sharp knife to cut out each dough circle. (Top rim of bowl should measure 12 inches in order to get the proper-size pastry circle.)
