These are outstanding!!! Great taste and very pretty presentation. This was my first time working with puff pastry and the overall experience was great. I had one little problem, I didn't look at the ounces for the coconut milk and used a 14 oz can that I had. As I was simmering I just new that something wasn't right, so I reread the directions and realized what I had done, so I ended up tripling all the rest of the ingredients. This worked out fine and DH has happily brought treats in for everyone at work. DH and BIL both loved them and BIL took about 10 home with him too. Thanks Derf, this was a great recipe!!!
