Entered for safe-keeping, from Kraft recipes. Substitute vanilla for allspice if you want a sweeter flavor.

Very good, savory and sweet bread. The appearance and texture was quite different from the Salvadoran quesadillas that I'm used to, but the flavor was spot-on. Very sweet, cheesy and had a nice hint of spice from the allspice. I used Cotija cheese instead of Parmesan, and sprinkled some sesame seeds on the batter before baking.
