I modified these a bit...well actually, a lot. I was looking for a base for filled scrolls. I used cream cheese and pesto as a filling. The actual scrolls were beautiful. Light and fluffy and exactly what I was looking for. Next time I am going to make them with the sun dried tomato and feta.
Thanks for sharing. :)
