1) Make sure you thaw out the pastry dough completely. I like leaving it in the refrigerator over night. 2) The size that you make these is completely up to you. My husband likes these "hot pocket" size. For him, I take a 4" square, fill it with a few tablespoons of the mixture and place a second 4" square on top (crease the sides). The baking time then takes about 30 minutes. Others like filling the mixture into cups. The recipe works well for an appetizer, they can be eaten in one or two bites and don't fall apart. I would love to hear your variations.
