DIRECTIONS

  • NOTE: You will need a non-stick mini muffin pan.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake the puff pastry squares with cherries for 13 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 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).
  • Allow the puff pastry wontons to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Place a heaping teaspoon of the mascarpone filling over each cherry. Sprinkle each wonton with a bit of the reserved pecan bits then serve!
