BackstoryThis is one of my favorite recipes from my favorite book- Bo Friberg's The Professional Pastry Chef. These are easy, easy, easy, and they taste so good! I always include these in my holiday gift baskets to friends and family.
You can make these to the point of shaping into logs and them wrap and freeze for 2 months! Just slice off what you need and bake whenever you want a treat.
