Ricotta Chocolate Chip Pastry Squares

Cannoli-inspired quick recipe for flakey, sweet, pastry squares with a ricotta and chocolate chip center.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
YIELD 9 Pastry Squares


  • 1 Puff Pastry Sheet, thawed
  • 9 Tablespoons (135g) Ricotta cheese
  • 9 Tablespoons (126g) Chocolate chips
  • 1 Tablespoon Coarse/turbinado/demerara sugar or a pinch of sugar on each square

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg, whisked


  1. Set out your frozen puff pastry about 30 minutes prior to assembling these squares. If you don't have time to let it thaw out, follow the quick thaw instructions on the box.

  2. Preheat your oven to 350F/177C. Unroll the puff pastry and cut into 9 squares using a pizza cutter or dough cutter. No rolling pin required! Transfer the dough squares to a parchment-lined baking pan.

  3. Place about 1 tablespoon of ricotta cheese in the center of each square, spreading it out in an even little circle, staying 1-2cm away from the edge of the square.

  4. Brush on the egg wash to the exposed pastry, avoiding the cheesey center.

  5. Sprinkle each square with approximately 1 Tablespoon of chocolate chips. Sprinkle all squares with sugar.

  6. Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 350F/177C for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown and perfectly flakey.
