Omlet Recipe

The Omlet recipe is the first recipe in Pauline’s pastry cookbook. I remember when Grandma Pauline would make this for breakfast as a special, sweet treat for her grandchildren. This Omlet recipe makes a sweet, puffy pancake that is baked in the oven, then spread with jam, and rolled.
