How to Make It

Step 1

Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer in a medium-sized bowl until creamy. Add 1/2 cup powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until smooth. Stir in coconut.

Step 2

Roll 1 sheet puff pastry into a 12" x 12" rectangle. (Pastry will be thin.) Cut into 9 (4") squares. Stack 2 chocolate sections, just off center, on each square; top chocolate with 1 heaping teaspoon coconut mixture.

Step 3

Whisk together egg and water in a small bowl. Lightly brush edges of squares with egg mixture; fold into triangles. Seal edges with a fork. Place pastries on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

Step 4

Repeat procedure with remaining sheet of pastry, chocolate (reserve extra chocolate sections for another use), and coconut mixture. Brush remaining egg wash over top of pastries.

Step 5

Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes; transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Sift powdered sugar over pastries.
