  2. That looks great! I’ve never tried to make anything using frozen puff pastry, but I think it’s time to try making a cheese danish!

    Wow, these look really good. I used to get something like this from a little bakery in Wisconsin. I might have to try and make these now that I’m getting nostalgic. I just started my own food blog, if you have some time you could check it out and let me know if you have any suggestions?
