I left my puff pastry out at room temp too long and it was warm in the kitchen. The puff pastry layers were stuck to themselves and I ended up just rolling the whole thing out to one big sheet. Very tasty dish, and I loved the addition of ham... I mean really, what can't be improved with ham? Made for ZWT6.
I was intrigued by this recipe, and my curiousity was rewarded with a lovely dinner! :D I must be thick headed, but I couldn't/didn't understand the amount of puff pastry compared to the amount of other ingredients. I used one sheet of a Pepperidge Farms puff pastry box(17.3 oz.) - it contained 2. I rolled it out, (approx.12" X12") spread the meat mixture over almost 1/2 of pastry sheet and folded the other half over, crimping with a fork, to seal. I also cut 3 vents in the top, to allow steam to escape. I don't know if I did this right or not, but it sure was good! :-) Thanks for sharing, The Wallaces. Made for ZWT.
