On parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheet, unroll pastry.

Remove waxed paper. Using serrated knife, slice pastry into scant 1/2-inch thick rounds. Arrange, 1 inch apart, on parchment paper– lined rimless baking sheet. Bake in 400°F oven, turning once, until golden, about 20 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool completely. Store in airtight container for up to 2 days.) Serve warm or at room temperature.
Makes about 18 pieces.

These simple chocolate pastries are available in cafés and bakeries worldwide. Their classic French roots showcase buttery pastry and rich dark chocolate— two of our favourite things!
On work surface, gently unroll pastry. Cut lengthwise into thirds; cut crosswise to make 15 squares. Sprinkle chocolate lengthwise along centres of pastry squares.
Whisk egg with 1 tsp water. Brush some of the egg wash over ends of pastry parallel to filling; fold ends over filling, overlapping by 1/4 inch and gently pressing to seal.
Arrange, seam side down, 1 inch apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining egg wash. Bake in 400°F oven until golden, about 18 minutes.
Dust with icing sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Makes 15 pieces.
