These are simple and delicious! The pastry dough lends itself to almost any topping and is good even with sugar alone. I made half a batch and got about 15 pastries. I can't imagine making more than that - they were small as is. These were quite fragile for rolling, even with 2 hours of refrigeration and I ended up just wadding some of them up into pastry balls. Next bunch I didn't roll out so thin and they were a bit easier to roll. I tried some wiht jam, some with chocolate chips, dried fruit, coconut - all lovely. Thanks for sharing!
