I love the flavor. I ended up just cuting my puffed pastry into fourths instead of circles cause I didn’t mind extra puffed pastry. I think next time I’ll try and layer as I go. This time I did the honey and sugar on all 8 then the pastry. But since my cookie sheet is no longer completely flat the honey slide around causing it to already be seeping out when I put the pastry down. 😬 I might try a little less honey and sugar as well, just to keep it contained. Lol
