Thanks a lot for your perfect recipe. I had a similar one, but as I'm using now usually food.com recipes, I've found that I should look for another one here. I saw your's (without review and picture) and I found you could need a review and a picture.
It worked very well, without any problems. I didn't need a sweet fill, so I prepared a salty filling.
Your recipe is really perfect for sweet and salted filling! Next time I'll use your recipe as well!
