    I would agree that there was less filling than pastry. Despite being pretty thorough sealing with egg they still somehow spilt out a bunch of the cheese, but were still quite nice. I think that I would maybe add a brush of butter in between layers to make them more crunchy (unhealthy I know).

    The pastry to filling ratio was way off (not enough filling), so I could only make half the pastries stated in the recipe. On top, while baking, the pastry cracked on both sides and released the filling. Despite all this, nice taste, but not sure whether to repeat.
