“Made these yesterday for company but I should have made double the recipe! ;) There were only 4 of us & I only had a little bite!!! Thawing time is not included - however, I have always thawed my puff pastry ahead of time, in the refrigerator (sorry:)) I took poetic license and added my kind of nut (what is available at the time).Found at PepperidgeFarms web site.”
