From Food for Thought, Favorite recipes of the Morristown-Beard School. I expected a crescent or dough for this but there is none. You mix some ingredients in a skillet and then chill it (at last an hour-not included in prep time) and later scoop it into pieces of roasted peppers and then broil until bubbly and puffed. Sounds delicious but I haven't tried it yet.
