Pumpkin Pastry Recipe
I kept saying to myself that I should share a pumpkin recipe before winter passes. When I was wondering what to do with a small amount of chopped zucchini at home, it came to my mind that I hadn't done this pastry for a long time. It didn't take me long to convince me that we love to have breakfast for dinner.
We had a nice evening breakfast with our delicious pastries. Since we don't like to eat the same things over and over, I threw the leftovers in the freezer instead of leaving them stale to eat tomorrow. We take it out for breakfasts once in a while and eat it. It is very practical to store food, especially if you are working.
After cooking your pastries like this, put them in thick refrigerator bags and put them in the freezer. When you eat it, take it out of the freezer the night before and put it in the fridge. When you take them out of the cupboard in the morning, they will be as fresh as you cooked the first day. You can heat it up or eat as is
