This recipe should read 2 TABLESPOONS of filling per circle. I used 2 teaspoons for the first dozen and had way too much filling leftover for the second dozen. The ingredients add up to 3 cups of filling, which is 48 tablespoons.Other than the typo, my husband and I really enjoyed these. He burned his tongue because he was so excited to eat them he didn't wait for them to cool a bit.
