The filling was delicious, but the recipe needs extreme editing. I ended up tossing out the dough and starting over with dough from a different recipe. I'm not sure if the dough here doesn't work or if I just got lost and messed up halving the recipe with the less than crystal clear directions. I halved it because a full batch looked like it would feed a small army, and only half a batch of filling would fit in my big skillet. Half a batch made enough to feed 5-6. I would definitely use the filling again.
