Easy breakfast pastry recipes

fully puffed pastry

Early last summer my husband and I went to Freeport, Maine for a long extended holiday. We stayed at big modern hotel that was recently bought and refurbished by a network. Among other stuff the room rate included continental breakfast that featured one the most delicious pastries I ever tasted in life.

The salty smelling ocean breeze accompanied by absolutely stunning sweet and airy morning scones and donuts sprinkled with chocolate brought to bed along with a cup of steaming latte, relaxed atmosphere and great nature sightseeings created a wonderful memories to cherish for years to come.

Now, making some of the pastries at home reminds me of those precious moments and brings back an ocean smell into our small living room. Share with me this joy by trying my favorite pastry recipe below.
