Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Aunt Teresa began making this pastry in the late 1980's. It quickly became a family favorite. After a few years we discussed the possibility of introducing a new type of pastry. Debbie Wells told her she could not do that because it would not be Christmas Brunch without the pastry. Everyone in the family agreed with Debbie, and this pastry has become the hallmark of our Brunch!
