Recipe by Nadia Melkowits
These little croissants melt in your mouth when just pulled out of the oven. Fragrant and fluffy , they are a true delight. I like to use bits of rose water Turkish delight in mine, usually found in ethnic stores. Another great filling is apricot or some other savory jam. If you enjoy baking you should give these a try.
