Hello Friends! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! We enjoyed our first festival of the season and started to work on our home project list. Those home projects are always around and we are hoping to get started on a project soon. There is just something about the anticipation of summer that makes me want to get started on home projects.
In addition to home projects, my mother and daughter and I also did some fun spring crafting which I will share soon. I love to craft for the season. There is just something about using your creativity to create that is entirely satisfying.
Speaking of embracing the season, we made these easy breakfast pastries recently. They are so easy to make and what is great is that it is easy to put your own spin on them.

Time Saving and Expert Tips
Make sure you don't overfill the pastries and use a fork to crimp the edges tightly.
I like to ice these with an easy milk and powdered sugar icing. The mixture is ¼ cup powdered sugar with 1 tablespoon of milk or water. Beat until smooth and drizzle on pastries
I recommend letting the dough sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before using it. This will make it easier to work with
Yes, you can freeze the remaining dough for later use. Just wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store it in the freezer
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
