RECIPE BACKSTORY
Years ago I found a square single ravioli cutter with a fancy serrated edge. I cut the squares and fold them in half bringing the right bottom and left top corners to the center and holding together with a toothpick. They look nice and are so delicious. These pastries do freeze well.
