    Recipe was easy to follow. I need more practice in rolling up the triangles with filling...they didn't look perfect, but turned out terrific after baked, cooled and dusted with icing sugar. I made the date and nut filling and threw in a 1/2 cup mini white chocolate chips...this was an afterthought turning out delicious!
