This was realy yummy and looked like a fancy appetizer. The cheese got gooey and oozed out of the pastry a little but not tooo bad. The creaminess of the cheese with the sweet preserves and buttery pastry was a great combo! Served with sliced french bread that I drizzled with olive oil and toasted in the oven.
