I've made these for years and it's a favorite of mine. For those who don't care for rye, you can make these with white flour as well. I typically double the filling and make one batch of rye and one white to please everyone.

These are quite labor-intensive and taste rather bland. The caraway seeds ended up everywhere; next time I would incorporate them into the filling. There is way too much cream cheese in the filling, and we couldn't taste the dried beef/corned beef or the rye at all. These need more seasonings to give them a kick.

Followed the recipe exactly and got a thumbs up from 5 taste testers. I personally think I would double the corned beef next time.

The puffs are really great. Next time I will try more meat as I thought the filling flavor was a bit bland

if i take these to a party i had better come with plenty of copies of the recipe. only thing i have changed is to go easy on the amount of filling. any leftover goes great on crackers, etc.

Fantastic - I only used one 8 oz cream cheese. I substituted the mustard for Dijon & added 2 oz of extra meat. Wonderful. Can't wait to make it again!
