Fall Birthday Buns
For my sweetie….a memory of Cerrillos, New Mexico.
Not much of a recipe however-more of a technique. Puff pastry and chopped lovely things inside. A little spice, a little butter, some love….an all around wonderful birthday morning treat! Has to be said that we both thought of the holidays with this and old family memories of mincemeat pies. It has that spicy-nutty-dried fruit thing goin on…at least mine did. The beauty is you can add anything you like, pop it in the oven and really in 20 minutes or after the coffee’s brewed you’re in…
