    Also – this makes it sound like you add the frozen spinach to the pan. Trying it now. Does NOT seem right. Pan can’t stay hot at medium-low with a frozen block of spinach…

    Sorry one more… 200 degrees barely even heated up my dough. Is this the right temp for 20 minutes? My dough must be different. I bought Pepperide Farms Puff Pastry sheets.

    I suspect that’s 200C so 400F should do the trick
    Where I am (Australia) all cheese is “grated” to look like that, we don’t use the term “shredded”
    Does that help?

    Will make them this weekend, what kind of shredded cheese do I buy to use. ? You don’t specify? Also do we butter the dough at all?

  5. Cheryl Kalil says:

    Jen Atkins – you have to thaw the spinach first and drain it – squeeze in cloth or papertowels to get most of the water out. Also, the 200c is almost 400F, but I would do 375 and keep an eye on it.
