"I made these for a New Year's get together one year. The taste was good but I could have done with more of the filling in them. I tasted too much of the puff pastry. Will make again and increase the filling a bit. Might also try Locatelli Romano to see if it takes the flavor up a notch. Wonderful appetizer idea!"
