I made these to use up some grated cheese and leftover ham. I skipped the dill, and parsley, and added some left over chopped ham. They were delicious! Somewhat dense, but light and flaky. Will make again as they are easy and fast. I would not knead them as much next time, as I think I may have over kneaded them. I also sprinkled some additional shredded cheese (1/2TBS) on each one when they came out of the oven. It melted and made them lovely and appetizing.
So light and flakey. My husband and I loved them!
