We liked these. They were relatively easy to make.. my only real problem was that I left the dough in the fridge for about an hour and it was still quite difficult to roll out, being a tad on the dry side. I did get slightly over zealous on the rolling out and the thicker ones tasted better than the thinner ones, but that didn't influence the review any. Please see my rating system: I have given 3 stars simply beuase this was "nice enough" and really not a bad recipe at all. It's just that somehow this combination of flavours just didn't suit us as well as I thought it would when I saw the ingredient list. Maybe it's a simple case of too high expectations of the flavour that would be produced? I would personally go for more garlic if I made this again... maybe we have come to expect stronger flavours since we are such garlic lovers? I think that this is a recipe to experiment with and to work on a combination of flavours (and their strengths) that I would like to have a go at later, becuase I was so certain that I would like this more when I first looked at the recipe. Thanks!
