Easy and so yummy! Looks like more work than it really is. This is a favorite of our family for the holidays and looks so nice on a tray with other Christmas cookies. The number of servings will depend on how thick you slice them. Enjoy!

It's a tasty combo! I used the qty's as a guide only as I only had ready rolled pastry sheets on hand. I think it would be better to let the butter mixture cool before spreading on pastry. Thanks for sharing Ugogirl!
