These came out great! I bought the dough in the can and they came out great. Loved the spinach, and I added chopped pepperoni to the mix. I heated up some canned marinara sauce to dip them in. My family enjoyed eating these but they could also be used at a party because they look really good. Thanks for sharing this!
