"When I was making these, they made a mess everywhere and I decided I would never try them again; but then I tasted them after they were done cooking, and they were SO GOOD! They make a mess when you cut them apart and twist them, but they are definitely worth it! (I sprinkled all the cheese that fell out of the filling on top before baking.) Use a long, sharp knife or a pizza cutter to cut them apart (works much better than my first attempt with a paring knife)."
