How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the pastry sheet in half lengthwise to form 2 rectangles.  Fold 1 rectangle in half lengthwise.  Using a sharp knife, cut 9 slits through the folded side to within 1/2-inch of the opposite edge.

Step 2

Stir the cream cheese and cinnamon in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.  Place the uncut pastry rectange onto a baking sheet.  Spread the cream cheese mixture on the pastry to within 1/2-inch of the edge.  Sprinkle with the chocolate.  Unfold the cut pastry and place it over the filling.  Press the edges to seal.

Step 3

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

    Better Than I Thought

    Was a little skeptical from the reviews, but I liked it very much. Try another chocolate. Perhaps the bittersweet is too bitter for you. Try using semi-sweet or even milk chocolate. Also, try a little less cardamon. Made it twice, once with bittersweet and once with semi-sweet. The semi-sweet was the winner with me but adapt it to your own chocolate preference. Going to try it with other additions now that I have the basic recipe.
