"This recipe is the traditional filling used at Christmas time as a filling for Italian cookies but surely could be used for filling puff pastry. Leftovers can be stored in refrigerator in tightly covered container. This recipe can easily be doubled." — ELEANOR1052

semisweet chocolate chips
We bought some Pillsbury crescent rolls to use as our pastries. We found that unrolling the whole can and cutting it into 8 squares worked best. We sealed the edges with egg and pressed it with a fork. They came out great and were a good after dinner snack. Although they would be good for breakfast with tea.
The chocolate is very subtle. The flavors work really well together with nothing over-powering the others.
This was excellent...very flavourful.
Have used with cookie dough plus phyllo pastry and was loved by all. Thanks for recipe. So if you like fig newtons..you will love this.
I actually deep fried these with wonton skins. They were really delicious. But I had a lot of filling left over. and I used fresh figs which made it kind of jam like.
Yeah, not real impressed with this. It tasted just fine, but was thick and tacky. Followed the recipe as is.
