I made the recipe exactly. It was great until I added the 4th egg and then it became a bit soupie - not like puff dough at all. I thought I had made a mistake when I printed out the recipe - so went back on-line to read the recipe again. I hadn't so - I added another 1/4 cup flour and 1 teaspoon for rosemary and I used a blend for 4 shredded chesses. I also used salted butter too. The first batch I baked on the baking sheet were horrible and flat. So - I threw them out. The next batch I put into my mini muffin pan and they came out terrific. I made another half batch to replace the ones I had tossed. They were perfect I definitely recommend using a mini muffin pan. Mine is silicone and is great for these. Also, I did not toss out the inside of the putt, just added the shrimp filling on top of it. My guests loved them. I will definitely make them again and for certain sure use my mini muffin pan to bake them from the beginning.
