"BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE" FOR OPEN HOUSE TIME


                                                 SIMPLE PASTRY PUFFS:


Now that winter is here and a "slow down" of activities has occurred we find ourselves like many of you:  turning to soups and breads and loving the smell of our cup of hot tea. We have a wood burning stove and love firing it up so we can be cozy and warm. 















Pastry puffs are SO EASY to bake and keep on hand in the freezer.  These are great additions for your morning coffee.

WELCOME TO MY FRIDAY "Open House" where fellow bloggers are invited to link a post about anything to do with HOME, GARDEN, INTERIORS, CRAFTING, SEWING, COOKING.......you get the idea!  Would you also include a link on your post to my post?

I am linking this post:  Home Sweet Home and Show And Tell Friday and Rustic Restorations and The Rosegarden In Malevik




PUFF PASTRY FILLED WITH JAM AND CREAM CHEESE:  There are 2 folded sheets in each Pepperidge Farm Box.  This morning I took one out to thaw for 40 minutes.  Each sheet will make 9 puffs by cutting each of the 3 sections into 3 squares.
Put a heaping teaspoon full of jam  in the center of each square with a teaspoon of cream cheese.  Fold the square over to form a triangle and crimp with a fork.

BAKE IN A PREHEATED OVEN 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Jam-filled pastries are just divine and it's cold here too, although we don't have snow! My oven is finally repaired and I'm baking today; sure have missed a treat with my afternoon tea--which BTW, it's National Hot Tea Month, XOXO

Your pastries look lovely, Bernideen. Love your chintz tea set! Brrr; it's cold here too and so happy we have a wood pellet stove to keep us toasty warm.
I made a hearty stew with dumplings for dinner tonight. Wintertime is a good time for comfort food. Thank you for sharing and have a lovely weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Looks like a wonderful way to spend a cold afternoon. Such pretty teacups and pot, and yummy pastries! We finally had a little cold snap, but it won't be here for long. We'll inch back up in the 60's by next week.

Your photo collage is lovely. Your pastries remind me of a Pillsbury product, fruit turnovers, that we used to bake when I was growing up. They do indeed look delicious. Have a nice wknd, Bernideen.
