    1. I love the hidden cheesecake filling. I always wondered how the filling was put into the sones:-) Thank you for sharing the great photos. I will have to try this as my scone recipe is always too sticky to roll out.

    3. Question. Does the second fold meet the first fold in the middle? Or do you fold the second fold all the way over the first one?

      • Hi Sue, Fold the second side completely over the first fold. I changed the directions to state that. Thanks for visiting. 🙂
