"These are delicious albeit more time consuming than it said. I'm thinking about using store bought crescent rolls the next time as a trial."

"Deliscious! A little time consuming to put together, but worth the outcome. Good flavor, even people who do not like mushrooms liked these!"

"This version of muchroom turnovers is ok but a little bland tasting, it needs some umph, garlic, spices something to liven it up a little."
