The pastry definitely deserves 5 stars. Very easy to work with. I cut the recipe in half and made them with the chocolate filling. Even cutting the filling in half, I had way too much. The filling also had a very 'grainy' texture, not a smooth creamy chocolate. Will try them again using a fruit filling. Thanks for sharing!
Holy wow! Thank you Alton Brown and 2Bleu! I just made these - did the chocolate version, some PB&J, some meat/potatoes/garlic/onion. They are really fantastic. I used skim milk because I had it - and had no problems. The only issue I had was with some spillage out of the chocolate ones. I think leave those a little thicker than the other ones, because the mixture tends to explode out in the pan. Other than that these are really fantastic and versatile. Thanks again!
I made the toaster pastry version and ended up with 4 1/2 pies. Since you said any fruit filling could be used, I filled the pastries with apple pie filling as per DD's request. The pies were quite easy to make. I think the pastry was a bit too much for the amount of filling. I sprinkled some sugar on some of them and that did seem to improve them. I also didn't get the pastry thin enough (my fault), though they fit into the toaster just fine. When I make these again I'll be making the smaller baked or fried version.
These were delicious, Bleu! We made the chocolate version and they were gone before I knew it! Made just as posted, we did sprinkle powdered sugar on top when we were done.. Going to make the mango version next time. Made for photo tag 08'. Thanks for posting this!!!
