roll out the dough to ¾ inch thick. Cut out the dough into 2 ½ inch circles with a ring cutter.  Place on a parchment lined sheet pan; brush the sides and top with heavy cream, dust with sugar and bake until golden brown (about 25 -35 minutes).  Remove from oven and let cool.




Sugar Poached Orange Pinwheels

oranges and simmer for 1 minute and remove from the heat. Let the oranges cool on the counter for an hour before refrigerating.  When cooled cut the oranges into pie like quarters, and place back into the liquid until plating. 
 
Marinated Strawberries

In a mixing bowl add the remainder of strawberries, sugar and puree.  Mix together and keep cool in the refrigerator until plating.
