    Hi Marti, OMGosh these sound fabulous…. I am going to definitely try them! I just popped over from Susan’s Between Naps on the Porch Metamorphosis Monday to extend and invitation for you to participate in my Patisserie Tuesdays. It is all about the sweet sides of our kitchens and should be lots of fun and a great way to get some new recipes to try out… perhaps for the holidays. You can read more about Patisserie Tuesday here http://elisabetpollock.blogspot.com/p/patisserie-tuesdays.html. I would love to have you participate and please tell your baking friends as well… the more the merrier I always say, especially when it comes to sweet treats!
    Hugs and happy baking,
    Beth P
