I was a bit disappointed in these and found the thyme flavor to overpower the filling. I also found that they needed to bake longer than the 20 minutes and probably baking at a higher temperature would be best. This is however a recipe that I would try again, leaving out the thyme, as it was very easy to assemble, and has the potential to be very versatile with the filling ingredients.

This one was a big hit in this house. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to make. I did the second atch at 350F and found this made for a slighly better colour in the 18 minutes I had my small convection oven set for. Went down well with the 3 year old and the big kids too.
