May I make a suggestion? I lightly patted the top crust with wet hands and sprinkled a powdered Scampi seasoning blend right over the top before cutting into strips. Also I chopped up fresh rosemary and sprinkled over the top crust instead of inside the filling. They came out delicious. You must work carefully due to the delicate pie crust. I would definitely make again!

These were easy to make, but lacked flavor. I might make them again, but I'll add some extra spices - maybe some seasoning salt, red pepper, minced garlic... As they are now they need a dipping sauce. I really like the method, though. You can customize it to you liking. It's a great way to have a quick, last minute appetizer for a party or pot-luck. I like the other reviewers' ideas about cinnamon and sugar.

Recipe lacks flavor, too much dough not enough filling. Because of the way that the two pieces of crust are twisted together, I think that any increased filling would simply ooze out of the sides. Next time I do these, I'm going to try to copy other recipes that I've used in the past with puff pastry and try spraying with water to help the seasonings and cheese adhere better and only use one piece of the dough. I don't think that anything is gained by using the cream cheese, but I'll add some other seasonings with the rosemary to balance the flavors.

Does it really matter how many pieces you get out of this recipe? Bottom line is that it is easy & it sounds like it will taste great! It seems like no matter how you "cut it" this is a keeper!

The reason you do not cut the 4 end pieces is because it is a circle, and as you get to the edges, in gets smaller and they would be to small to cut in half. You get 44 servings by cutting the 20inside pieces in half giving you 40 and the 4 outside pieces you did not cut would then give you 44!%0d%0a%0d%0aI couldn't find the diagram either but not difficult to figure out.%0d%0a%0d%0aSounds like a extremely easy and good recipe that I am going to try this weekend.

either i am stupid or i did not CLEARLY understand the directions for making this. it is confusing how you "get 44" pieces/servings from this. maybe step by step pics could be used to demonstrate. to save space they could be made small with the ability to enlarge as i have see on other sites. i am still going to try this to see if it could e as good and/or easy as you say it is.
