G free Bundles

These Heavenly bundles are decadent & lavish, but so worth it! I make these only for special occasions & I had made these for years with regular puff pastry dough, until I was diagnosed with Celiac disease a couple of years ago. I had missed these desserts, but one day I found a market that carried g free puff pastry dough!! They were quite pricey ($9 for a package of 2 sheets!! Yikes!!), but worth it for this rare treat! I made 2 kinds. One was my traditional dark vegan chocolate & walnuts; the other, a new combo, was an apple/cranberry/pecan bundle! Oh my!!
