These gorgeous little puff pies are filled with rich chocolate, creamy mascarpone and hazelnut. An easy pie recipe that takes no time at all and makes a truly scrumptious sweet treat.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Warm the mascarpone, cream, butter and sugar in a pan set over a medium heat, until almost boiling. Melt in the chocolate, then add the nuts. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Divide the chocolate mixture into 9 pieces. Roll each into a ball and arrange on a tray; flatten slightly. Freeze for at least 1 hour. 
  3. Roll out the pastry to a 30 x 30cm (12 x 12in) square. Cut into 9 even squares. Put a piece of frozen chocolate in the centre of each and brush the edges with beaten egg. Fold the pastry in half to make a triangle, enclosing the filling. Press the edges together to seal, then crimp with the back of a fork.
  4. Put the triangles on a baking tray and brush all over with beaten egg. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until puffed and golden. Leave to cool a little before serving.
