My husband really enjoyed these little pockets. I baked two batches of them to keep in the fridge and freezer for him to heat up when he gets up in the morning. The first batch, I followed the instructions, but it was hard to roll those little biscuits into 4 inch rounds without them bouncing back. Also, the recipe doesn't state to use the pricked biscuits on top. (It may seem obvious, but beginner chefs might not understand.) The second batch I made, I used jumbo biscuits (8 to a tube, but larger) and they were much easier to work with. They kept their shape and didn't bounce back after being rolled and also made a bigger pocket for bigger appetites! For this batch, I pricked the tops AFTER the pockets were assembled and it was much easier. This recipe can be adjusted to whatever kinds of meats and cheeses you happen to want to use up or have on hand and I will make it again. Thanks! Made for Pick A Chef Fall 2007
