    I love the recipe, but it is time consuming. To make things easier I used butter spray and put the Nutella in a bag and cut off the corner to pipe on the dough.  -  19 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this with my 6 year old and she loved it. Everyone did really. We made it twice, the first time we had issues with the dough ripping when we put the butter on it. The second time I used PAM olive oil spray (spray lightly) and they were perfect.  -  31 Jul 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are simple, delicious, and a fantastic way to use up leftover phyllo dough when making a savory entree for dinner. I always wind up with part of a package left over and am always looking for easy fillings, and this was one of our favorites. Thanks for sharing your recipe!  -  05 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
