This was a quick and easy week night meal! The only change I made was to add some seasoned salt and pepper to the meat since there wasn't any listed. I also pressed together all the seams and the top and bottom pieces of the crescents to make sure the filling did not come out. I cooked mine for 20 minutes and it didn't get too browned and the dough was no longer gooey. Made for New Kid on the Block Tag January 2010.
