      I'm not the greatest baker and these worked out well for me! I was a little worried that I didn't have enough dough, but in fact it puffs out beautifully, with a delicious pesto surprise instead! I used an olive pesto, and took most of these to friends for Sunday lunch, but DH made sure he kept some aside for himself! This is definitely a make again, a great snack and very nice for offering to guests! Thank you, Catherine! Made for PAC Spring 2009
