    We do not care for brie so I substituted feta and it was amazing! The salty feta with the sweet cranberries, spicy mustard, and crunchy nuts hit all of the high spots!

    I kept the principle of the pinwheels. But they had no taste. Fixed next batch by using balsamic and herbs mustard with blue cheese. Omitted the nuts and spinach and Brie. Cranberries need to be beefed up so balsamic worked for a higher flavor profile.

    It's good, but nothing too special. Also, "finely chopped" Brie was really not happening. I think it would have been easier just to spread it on the dough before the honey mustard. I would also recommend greasing or lining the pan, because when the cheese melted it got kind of stuck.

    This recipe is amazing. I absolutely love everything about these. As one person said, the roll is hard to keep together but all you have to do is pinch the opening and then hold it as you slice and carefully place it on the baking sheet. If you're worried about the frozen dough cracking, just put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. This recipe definitely deserves 5 stars!

    Yum! I didn't use honey or spinach in the filling, just dijon mustard, cranberries and brie. They are so good.

    Kept the dough moist with a sheet of Saranwrap over the dough until I was ready. Worked great.

    Blondienot40 , You probably let it dry out too much is all I can think of to tell you . Keep it moist when lieing out with a damp towel over it . Hope this helps .

    My pastry shell fell apart when I cut it. Help what caused that.
