Pecan Banana Swirls

Pecan Banana Swirls

2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup finely chopped pecans
3 thinly sliced bananas
1 package puff pastry

Mix the sugar and pecans and set aside.  Thinly slice the bananas.  On a floured surface, open one sheet of puff pastry.  Sprinkle top with sugar mixture and gently roll with a rolling pin to imbed the pecans and sugar.  Turn pastry to other side, spread with sugar mixture and roll with rolling pin.  Cover the top of the pasty with bananas.  Working from one end, roll the pastry into a spiral (like a cinnamon roll).  Slice the roll into 12 slices.  Place slices on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and bake for 18 minutes in a 400 degree F oven.  Serve with carmel or ice cream. 

Becky's Note: I don't usually care for cooked bananas (except in banana bread) and was really hesitant to make this recipe.  However, I had 1/2 a package of puff pastry and some old bananas to use and decided to give it a try.  These pastries were really good!  I think this recipe would also be great with apples instead of bananas.  I found the original recipe here.
