Notes: These poofed up more than I expected, but the taste makes up for the look! There is nothing better than jam and cream cheese. They are light, flakey, and a nice way to wake people up. Nothing like hot pastries in the morning. Try these out if you have company and you are guaranteed success. They are easier to make than they look. Enjoy!
