  1. We had a cool and rainy day yesterday, it was a welcome break from the heat wave we have been having and also a perfect time for baking. I had a package of puff pastry in the freezer that had been there for months. I used that, rolled thin. for this recipe and it turned out wonderfully. I cut the amount in half as there is only two of us in the house currently. We had them for dinner with some broccolini and cole slaw. The remaining few will be dispatched with todays lunch. The 4 stars is because DH grumbled about the pine nuts and gave the recipe a 3 rating because of them as opposed to my 5. I split the difference for 4 stars.
