These are so good! Taste like French pastry. The creme mixture is just right for a creme puff and the cherry surprise is lovely! I took these to our church Valentine's party and we loved them!!

Directions

  1. NOTE: You will need a non-stick mini muffin pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Spread a little of the flour onto some wax paper and unfold one of the puff pastry sheets onto it. Roll the dough with a floured rolling pin until it is 12X12 inches.
  4. Using a knife, cut the pastry dough into 24 squares. Repeat this process with the other sheet of puff pastry for a total of 48 squares.
  5. Shape a square of puff pastry into each muffin tin slot and then place a cherry into the bottom of each. Careful to not let any puff pastry square touch another and keep the tops open for filling.
  6. In a large bowl, using electric beaters; whip the heavy whipping cream and then add the mascarpone cheese in chunks and whip to blend completely.
  7. In a little bowl; mix the strong coffee with the cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar until it forms a paste. Add to the mascarpone mix and blend well.
  8. With a spoon, stir in 1/4 cup pecan chips reserving the other 1/4 cup for garnish. Stir in the graham cracker crumbs. Place mascarpone mix in the fridge until ready to use.
  9. Bake the puff pastry squares with cherries for 13 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Use a fork to gently remove puff pastry wontons from the muffin pan to a serving plate. (they will come right out, the fork is to keep from burning your fingers).
  11. Allow the puff pastry wontons to cool for 10 minutes.
  12. Place a heaping teaspoon of the mascarpone filling over each cherry. Sprinkle each wonton with a bit of the reserved pecan bits then serve!
