Honey-Nut Swirls

Puff pastry creates a quick and easy "dough" for pretty pinwheel-type cookies featuring two types of nuts. The flaky treats are hard to resist.—Sally Sibthorpe, Shelby Township, Michigan

    This is by far one of the best recipes Ive ever used. I actually use multiple nuts including cashews, and pecans. I also use maple syrup with the honey (1/2 honey 1/2 maple syrup) Today I integrated currants. It is incredibly yummy and will make many times for company when we have company again.

    There is far too much filling for one sheet of puff pastry. Cooking time was longer because the dough in the center was undone. Would not make again.

    Haven’t tried these yet, but look wonderful! The ingredients remind me of Baklava, which I love, but a little easier.
