 Pro Tips
  • **So this is an overnight recipe, hence its best made in your pajamas. Unless its quickie then 20 minutes in hot water.
  • **If you have extra bits let over you can always save that as a filling for our previous recipe for Braided Pastry with Strawberry Preserve and Peanut Butter Filling.
  • ** Now again, if its a quickie then in the freezer for a couple of hours.
  • ** Pansies, Sage Flowers or Violets are great choices for desserts.
