  1. I wasn’t super enthused about the puff pastry recipe. In my region, they were a little dense. However the pastry cream was absolutely out of this world! I added a tablespoon and a half of amaretto instead of rum for a twist. It was phenomenal! Going to keep the recipe for sure, with a star marked favorite!
