These are just excellent. However, the amounts were way off for me. I made Miller's Puff Pastry Puff Pastry Sheet Dough and measured my 6 four inch squares, and filled each square with 2 tablespoons of the spinach mixture and I still had over half the spinach mixture left. I had enough pastry to make 1-2 more and still had a huge amount of spinach mixture left over. I'm going to wrap it in a tortilla and bake it sometime in the next couple of days. Luby you might want to recheck the original recipe. Or do tell, I certainly could have messed it up, but I'm pretty darn sure I followed the recipe to a T. Anyway, this is certainly worth trying, bearing in mind that you may have extra filling. One other think, the egg yolk brushing makes these look like you put a thin coat of mustard on it before baking. I'll leave that part out next time.
