I did not use toffee. I made small pockets but they had to much crust and not enough filling.So i adjusted the recipie and made one big pocket. It csame out quick and yummy!!
Too much crust and not enough of that great filling. I would make again, but with less crust.
Very easy prep. Came out kinda small, but very yummy. Our 4 year old was a great help smashing the toffee. In the future I will use a 3.5 inch circle for the top pieces of crust.
I love the Matisse column in the magazine, but I agree with the other review almost verbatim. These were too small to capture the flavor of the the filling. I also had A LOT of filling left over. These actually were fun to make, but the end result was a disappointment for me.
I followed the recipe exactly. The filling was extremely good, but the pies themselves had too much 'bread' and not enough filling. Also, there was a lot of filling left over, after putting ~a Tb per pie, but the size of dough could not support more than that. I think I will try to make these again, but perhaps select a bigger cookie cutter (5"?) so there will be more filling per pie.
