Taste wise these yummy little flaky pastries deserve way more than 5 stars! They were so yummy, we could not stop eating them. :) Mmm, the combination of sesame seeds, cheese, onion and the flaky crust was just addictive! Mmmm!
However I, too, had a little problem with the filling being way too much for the amount of pastry this makes. Using an 8cm cookie cutter I ended up with 16 pastries and a lot of leftover filling, which I put on top of the pastries. lol
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a wonderful idea with us, Jude. Ill make this again and maybe also come up with a few different filling ideas for a mini pastry buffet at my next party.
Made and reviewed on recommendation of AZ July 2011.
